Stoicism

Stoicism

It was founded in the early 3rd century BC and revolves around 3 basic ideas: 

  • How life is brief and the world is unpredictable
  • How to be steadfast, strong, and in control of yourself
  • How dissatisfaction comes from impulsive reflexes rather than logic.

Epictetus

"The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best."

EPICTETUS

Build a village

You are only as strong as the people around you.

You can control whom you interact with, so build a strong personal and professional coalition: hire people with positive energy and create a circle of friends from different backgrounds for engaging conversations.

Never do anything out of habit

Always think about how you can improve your daily life.

Review your regular work routines and project procedures. 

Never let wealth distort your values

There is nothing wrong with achieving monetary success; however, you should never compromise your principles in its pursuit. 

Marcus Aurelius

"Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact."

MARCUS AURELIUS
