Journalist James Pogue on Political Principles and Cultivating Virtue | We All Must Go Into The Wild...

Ryan reads today’s daily meditation and talks to journalist James Pogue about his <a href='https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2022/04/author-james-pogue-on-the-new-right'>recent piece on the new right in Vanity Fair</a>, how the modern political climate is void of solid principles, why cultivating virtue is so important, and more. I came across his recent piece in Vanity Fair on the New Right, where he dives inside the new strain of reactionary, retro-patriarchal conservative politics embodied by those like Tucker Carlson and J.D. Vance. It touched on a lot of things I have been thinking about lately, so I wanted to have him on to discuss this particular topic because it feels timely and important. James Pogue is a journalist and essayist who has written for Harper’s, The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Granta, the New Republic, and Vice, among many others. He is a recipient of support from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and was once called a “brilliant young Southern writer” by the Oxford American. He lives in LA, where I help run a native plant nursery. My first book is called Chosen Country: A Rebellion in the West, a first-person account of conflict over public lands in the American west.  <a href='http://helloned.com/STOIC'>NED Products</a> will help you perform better, sharpen your mind and get consistent, quality sleep.

Why Stoics Put Greatness On Display

When we see greatness, we should memorialize it.We should put it that greatness up on display. On our desk. On the wall. In ink on our skin. On the home screen of our phones. However you decide to honor the people whose example you love, put it somewhere you are guaranteed to see it every day and ask: "am I living by the example they stand for?"→ Put your own greatness on display:Marcus Aurelius Print: https://store.dailystoic.com/products/marcus-aurelius-print Page-A-Day Desk Calendar: https://store.dailystoic.com/products/daily-stoic-page-a-day-desk-calendarAmor Fati Medallion: https://store.dailystoic.com/products/amor-fati-medallion-1Memento Mori Medallion: https://store.dailystoic.com/products/memento-moriHemingway First Draft T-Shirt: https://www.thepaintedporch.com/products/hemingway-tee?_pos=2&_sid=a325378b5&_ss=rDance of Death Print: https://store.dailystoic.com/products/arrow <a href='https://linkedin.com/STOIC'>LinkedIn Jobs</a> helps you find the candidates you want to talk to, faster.

Ryan talks to actor Justin Baldoni about his book <a href='https://geni.us/fBRaswz'>Man Enough: Undefining My Masculinity</a>, the importance of structure in the process of improving, how being vulnerable can change the way you view the world, and more.

Justin and I talk about his recently released book, Man Enough: Undefining My Masculinity, which is a reflection on his own struggles with masculinity.

Keita Bates-Diop on Destigmatizing Mental Health and Doing What You Love | These Things Have No Powe...

Ryan reads today’s daily meditation and talks to NBA Spurs basketball player Kieta Bates-Diop about his journey getting into the NBA, what he’s learned playing for coach Gregg Popovich, doing what you do you because you love it not for money, and more. Keita Bates-Diop is a pro basketball player for the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs. He played college basketball for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Despite several setbacks and challenges throughout his career, Keita has been able to excel because of his relentless work ethic and mindset. He was a bench player as a freshman at OSU in the 2014–15 season. As a sophomore, he expanded his role on the team, but as a junior, he suffered a stress fracture in his left leg, sitting out all but the first nine games, while the Buckeyes limped to a 17–15 record without him. He was granted a medical redshirt and came into his redshirt junior campaign one of the top options for new coach Chris Holtmann. Keita went on to finish his college career being named a multi-time Big Ten Player of the Week and player of the year for Ohio State. At the beginning of his professional career, Keita experienced another set-back due to illness and started in the NBA G League, but in 2018 he came back and was drafted by the Timberwolves. <a href='https://blinkist.com/STOIC'>Blinkist</a> takes top nonfiction titles, pulls out the key takeaways and puts them into text and audio explainers called <a href='https://blinkist.com/STOIC'>Blinks</a> that give you the most important information in just 15 minutes.

How The Stoics Dealt With Anxiety (10 Strategies)

How much more enjoyable would your days be without the constant dread of stress looming over you?  Anxiety was one of the main emotions Stoicism was built to handle. In this video best-selling author Ryan Holiday explores 10 of the best time-tested ways that the Stoics dealt with anxiety. ⚔️ Overwhelmed? You’re not alone. Check out the Daily Stoic Slay Your Stress Course: A 13-day challenge designed to reclaim your life from the negative effects of stress and anxiety. Go to <a href='https://dailystoic.com/stress'>https://dailystoic.com/stress</a> to sign up. The pages of Marcus Aurelius’s private journal are filled with notes to himself on how to ‘escape anxiety’. Epictetus says the ‘most important task in life’ was determining what we could control and what we couldn’t, in an effort to ease daily anxieties. Seneca’s letters are constant reminders to not suffer before it is necessary. And not just reminders, but practical, actionable steps to overcoming both.

Meg Mason on Writing, Developing Taste, and Tolerance

Ryan talks to author Meg Mason about her book <a href='https://www.thepaintedporch.com/products/sorrow-and-bliss?_pos=1&_sid=75f87f5d9&_ss=r'>Sorrow and Bliss</a>, how to develop taste as a writer, the vitality of being tolerant and forgiving of others, and more. Meg Mason began her career at the Financial Times and The Times of London. Her work has since appeared in The Sunday Times UK, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Sunday Telegraph. She has written humor for Sunday STYLE magazine and The New Yorker's Daily Shouts and been a regular columnist for GQ and contributor to ELLE, marie claire and Vogue.  Meg has written three books including the one we dive into today titled Sorrow and Bliss. When Meg first set out to write this book, she found herself stuck with 85,000 of a dreadful, untitled Christmas novel. After her own experiences with mental health, she ended presenting what is now Sorrow and Bliss to her publisher. The book is a  reflection on situations that commonly exist beyond mental illness as well as within it, including the way that women are treated by the health system, and the way that families create intractable roles and scripts for one another.  <a href='http://getkion.com/dailystoic'>Kion Aminos</a> is backed by over 20 years of clinical research, has the highest quality ingredients, no fillers or junk, undergoes rigorous quality testing, and tastes amazing with all-natural flavors.

Scott Hershovitz on Making Philosophy Practical | Assume Everyone Is Lying

Ryan reads today’s daily meditation and talks to Scott Hershovitz about his new book <a href='https://geni.us/6hzzS'>Nasty, Brutish, and Short: Adventures in Philosophy with Kids</a>, the common misconceptions about philosophy, how to apply philosophy to actual life, and more. Scott writes about law and philosophy. His academic work has appeared in the Harvard Law Review, The Yale Law Journal, and Ethics, among other places. He also writes occasional essays about philosophy for the New York Times. Before joining the Michigan faculty, Hershovitz served as a law clerk to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the United States Supreme Court and an attorney-advisor on the appellate staff of the Civil Division of the United States Department of Justice. The book follows an agenda set by Scott’s two sons, Rex and Hank. He takes us on a journey through classic and contemporary philosophy, powered by questions like, Does Hank have the right to drink soda? When is it okay to swear? And, Does the number six exist? Scott and his boys take on more weighty issues too. They explore punishment, authority, sex, gender, race, the nature of truth and knowledge, and the existence of God. Along the way, they get help from professional philosophers, famous and obscure. And they show that all of us have a lot to learn from listening to kids—and thinking with them. <a href='http://getkion.com/dailystoic'>Kion Aminos</a> is backed by over 20 years of clinical research, has the highest quality ingredients, no fillers or junk, undergoes rigorous quality testing, and tastes amazing with all-natural flavors.

8 Stoic Don'ts For A Better Life

“If you seek tranquillity,” Marcus Aurelius said, “do less.” And then he follows the note to himself with some clarification. Not nothing, less. Do only what’s essential. Ryan Holiday's 8 Stoic don'ts will help you determine the things are essential, and those that aren't. Follow these tips today and everyday. This is the simple recipe for improvement and for happiness.  So much of what we think we must do, so much of what we end up doing is not essential. We do it out of habit. We do it out of guilt. We do it out of laziness or we do it out of greedy ambition. And then we wonder why our performance suffers. We wonder why our heart isn’t really in it. But if we could do less inessential stuff, we’d be able to better do what is essential. <a href='https://insidetracker.com/STOIC'>InsideTracker</a> provides you with a personalized plan to improve your metabolism, reduce stress, improve sleep, and optimize your health for the long haul.
