The Benefits Of The 3 Disciplines

'The three disciplines' are an operating system for life that allows you to be proactive and not victimize yourself with the most common challenges of human life.

The Three Disciplines of Stoicism

  • Perception: it requires that we maintain absolute objectivity of thought; that we see things dispassionately for what they are.
  • Action: it relates to living unselfishly. We should work towards something larger than ourselves, a collective good while treating people justly and fairly.
  • Will: this is our attitude towards things outside our control. Those can only harm us if we allow them to.

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.

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!

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.

Giovanna Scalzone
