What could be better than listening to a fellow who says, A: You are responsible for your own actions and B: External events are beyond your control, so don't worry about them?
Epictetus, whose name just means "acquired" in Attic Greek ,was born a slave but became a free man. He's one of our favorite philosophers here at Paleo Treats. I first heard about him when listening to Will Guild lecture on mental toughness.
Fascinated by ideas thought up 2,000 years and still relevant today to damn near anything I encountered, I dug deeper. The more I searched, the cleaner his thoughts became, eventually helping to mold our own philosophy as a company into what we believe today. T
ake a look around the web for ol' Epic, and if you make the time to read him you're in for a treat.
Too much reading...
How about dessert?
