365 Days to Emotional Control

During the past 6 weeks I completed a course that involved, among many other things, some time to do some self reflection and to receive feedback from my peers.  One aspect of my life that I found needing some attention was my tendency to get carried away by emotional responses.   To work on controlling my emotional responses I have pledged to study stoicism and chronicle my progress as part of my process to build Mastery of Skill.

The go to resource for this journey will be The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living by Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman.  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 the next year.  I will be posting my thoughts and personal insights about my progress in the Master of Skill closed facebook group and would love for you to join in on the conversation.
