Daily Journey – September 2nd: The Philosopher’s School is a Hospital

 

You don’t see a doctor because you feel great, and when you go to the hospital you expect there to be some pain in the process of getting better.

Studying philosophy, like setting a broken bone, is not a gentle act. Expect to feel some pain and discomfort as you learn and grow.

Daily Journey is a collection of my thoughts from reading The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living.  My objective is to gain greater control of my emotional responses by reading and sharing my thoughts on stoicism with you all everyday over the course of a next year.  If you would like to explore these topics with me, and others who are seeking to gain emotional control I these articles to the Mastery of Skill closed facebook group and would love for you to join in on the conversation.

Live Skillfully!
