The Passivity of Stoics

The Passivity of Stoics

Modern Stoic books discuss about the "dichotomy of control", the idea that you are only responsible for things under your control. You should remain equiononimous about the rest.

The problem comes from the fact there are not many things that are under your control according to Stoics. Your character, your reactions.

This may leave their followers in a state of passivity. About small things like the steering the car or big ones like global warning.

Life Is A Contest

Life Is A Contest

Unlike the Stoics, Nietzsche believes that everything is a contest, where we express our will to power. Success or failure, it's all part of the process of becoming our true selves. Embrace the contest to unlock your potential and achieve the extraordinary!:

  • Life is a contest
  • Express your will to power
  • Failing is natural
  • Embrace the contest to reach your potential 🏃‍♂️
  • Success and failure are both part of the journey 🎢

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
