My Takeaways - The Daily Stoic

I try to implement at least a few things from a non-fiction book that I read. Here are a few I try to implement from the book The Daily Stoic:

  • Cold Showers
  • It's Ok To Not Know Everything
  • Luck And Prepara
  • Do, but Not To Impress Someone

Cold Showers

Cold Showers

There's this ideology about being prepared to withstand any difficult situations and one way is to get used to hardship.

I take at least 1 cold shower in a month.

This may seem easy but consciously choosing to do so is where it is difficult. It also let's you appreciate the comforts we take for granted so easily.

There are few other suggestions in the book to try walking on barefoot for a day, try living out of ₹50 - ₹100 (about a dollar's worth money) for a day.

It's Ok To Not Know Everything

It's Ok To Not Know Everything

It is impossible for a person to begin to learn what he thinks he already knows.

Have accepted the fact that I didn't know about many things at work and life in general.

It is humbling and that's the reality too, we don't know about many things in life. When we accept this we give room to learn.

Luck And Prepara

Luck And Prepara

You can prepare yourself to get lucky by focusing on doing the right thing at the right time - and, ironically, render luck mostly unnecessary in the process.

Luck happens when Preparation meets Opportunity. Luck is a by-product when the Preparation is there.

Do, but Not To Impress Someone

Do, but Not To Impress Someone

People whose opinion we covet are not all that great. They're flawed, distracted and wowed by all sorts of silly things themselves. We know this and yet we don't want to think about it.

Impressing someone has become the least of priorities. Just do what you can, with what you have, from where you are. Being good enough is good enough.

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

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

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!

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.

Ghazala Begum

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.
