'No role is so well suited to philosophy as the one you happen to be in right now.' Marcus Aurelius The Stoics' unique blend of practicality and wisdom has been inspiring the most successful among us for centuries, from Roman emperors to Barack Obama, and most recently via Ryan Holiday's bestselling The Obstacle is the Way. If that book introduced readers to the idea that what is in the way is the way, The Daily Stoic widens our view on the Stoic philosophy and shows that it can be applied to any problem. From how to manage failure to getting what you want, the ideas of Seneca, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius and others continue to be vitally relevant to today's doers and thinkers. Here, in bold new translations, language is stripped down to reveal powerful aphorisms that cut straight to the heart of our day-to-day challenges. Presented in a page-per-day format, this daily resource of Stoic inspiration combines quotations with calls to further reflection and action. Arranged topically, this guide features twelve principles for overcoming obstacles and achieving greater satisfaction.
It introduces readers to a new daily ritual and new orientation that will bring them balanced action, insight, effectiveness, and serenity.
