Stoicism & Productivity
Stoic philosophers developed various methods to ensure a productive and happy life. Their theories were most applicable going through times of anxiety, panic, or fear. Often encouraging others to face the troubled times head on, stoic philosophers believed the best way around an obstacle was through it. Inspired by the works of Marcus Aurelius, media strategist and writer Ryan Holiday uses the Roman philosophy of stoicism to explore how our reaction to obstacles can be our most defining feature. His book emphasizes how we can turn our adversities into an advantage.
