"Addy Osmani and GoLimitless created something amazing. It is a visual journey that provides insight into how to approach and tackle the obstacles of our daily lives -- not just limited to work/tech.
The chapters are well thought out and iterative. This will really resonate with the mindset of a programmer; how we break something that seems daunting down into smaller, very detailed pieces, and build it brick by brick. At the same time it will also help non-programmers see that same thought process through the lens of their everyday pursuits, struggles, aspirations, and goals.
Some of the lessons taught in this book are things I have already experienced, some are things I need to work on, and others are completely new to me. It reminds us that there is always something new to learn, learning leads to growth, and growth leads to wisdom. Sharing wisdom keeps that cycle looping."
"I'm a practical Stoic, have been for decades, and that I have rather a lot to say about people capitalizing on this philosophy. Today I'm delighted to share a new resource that I know will be enjoyable, well put together, and even motivating."
Grounded in pragmatism
Structured in engaging chapters, the book delves into pertinent topics such as the Stoic perspective on work-life balance, the power of deliberate actions, the value of initiating and refining action, and the interplay between ego and confidence. Each chapter resonates with the central theme of Stoicism - self-improvement through rationality, self-control, and acceptance, as it shapes your understanding of effective communication, emotional intelligence, discipline, and more.
Whether it's about stepping out of your comfort zone, taking control of your calendar, measuring success by your own standards, or understanding the multifaceted nature of success and failure, this book offers a treasure trove of insights, each steeped in the enduring wisdom of Stoicism.
Remember, the journey is about progress, not perfection. As you turn the pages of "The Stoic Mind," you equip yourself with the tools to sail through life's vast ocean with fortitude, irrespective of the storms you face. These teachings aren't relics of the past but beacons of wisdom for the present and future.
