Stoicism was the go-to philosophy for many great leaders in ancient Rome and Greece, but how useful can it be in the modern world?
Just ask Tim Ferriss: world-renowned entrepreneur, public speaker, and one of my personal heroes and favorite authors (Titans, Four Hour Workweek).
Tim Ferriss is a big advocate of stoicism and attributes much of his success to his study of the philosophy. This includes things like:
- Becoming a #1 New York Times Best-Selling Author (four times)
- Being listed at #6 in the “Top 20 Angel Investors” rankings for 2014
- Being ranked #1 on iTunes for podcasting (across all genres)
Essentially, there is very little that these ancient thinkers can’t help us accomplish and Tim Ferriss is living proof of that.
