  • Meditations by Marcus Aurelius is the thoughts of the most powerful man advising himself on how to take up his responsibilities and obligations of his positions. The book is practical philosophy throughout and easily readable and accessible.
  • Discourses and Selected Writings by Epictetus. He is able to express his thoughts very clearly and profoundly.
  • Letters from a Stoic by Seneca. These letters can guide us through problems with grief, wealth, poverty, success, failure, education, and more.

  1. Have a "To Stop" list. Identify the behaviour you want to stop and what you should do instead.
  2. Decide the type of person you want to become, then you won't take isolated incidents carelessly.
  3. Identify your Why. Why do you want to start a business? Why do you want to lose 14 pounds?
The Appeal Of Doomsday Novels

The ongoing pandemic is a once-in-a-century event that has put the feeling of comfort at a premium. One such unexpected source of comfort is the relatively new genre of cli-fi, that is the dystopian world of climate fiction: stories related to environmental devastation revolving around either the pre-apocalyptic ‘before’ or the post-apocalyptic ‘after’.

This genre is a rising trend, with novels that offer climatic doom or widespread ecological calamities becoming award-winning bestsellers.

To find a perfect career, we need to be good at what we do. It may be a technical skill like writing or coding, or something different, like designing homes, or cooking.

Intangible soft skills, ignored for decades, have now become important. These include emotional intelligence, empathy or making boring topics sound interesting.

Being observant does not mean being obnoxious or intrusive. It is done with subtlety and purpose. We assess for two things primarily:

  • Danger: How does this situation or individual make me feel? If you are walking to your car at night and see someone walking briskly towards you, your inner voice will make you more alert, and you can act on the feeling and avoid possible danger.
  • Comfort: Does this person make me feel comfortable at all times? Never ignore clues that say something is wrong.
