I know I posted my thoughts in my blog post, but the original article really has a different, and equally important point.

Sorry, but the same goes for this one what I wrote about and for FB. Some external links I just cannot read from my company’s PC. Therefore I would be happy if You could quote-post them here at IJRS.
Many thanks in advance. :meditate

Interesting article.
Basically using the STOIC method of looking at things. Not to make everything 'meh' or discounted but to try to bring a sense of realism over expectations and imagined 'rewards'.

Sorry, Yoshio, I don't feel comfortable cross posting somebody else's work onto another site. Since it removes their ad traffic. If anybody else wants to post it here in spoiler tags, go for it.

Kol, Ryan Holiday has written more than one book on Stoicism. :) So, I'm sure that's definitely the intention.
