I often wonder what Stoic habit would enable me to get out of my comfort zone and witness life through different perspectives.

Long story short, I found it. And it’s neither product of Zeno, nor Posidonius or Marcus Aurelius.

However, before proceeding with the theory’s practice, it’s essential to understand our inner spirit and discomfort fears.

After reading hundreds of ‘How to live your life as a Stoic’ articles, this was the approach that captured my attention and helped me understand.

Therefore, this is a specific approach and not a general text.

Please be reminded, however. It’s not about reading…

It’s the 6th of August, 1997.

Steve Jobs is getting ready for a Conference of the Macworld show in Boston.

Suddenly, the phone rang. It’s Bill Gates. They talked for an hour.

I am confident that you have heard once in your lifetime about the original roots of Democracy, Western civilization, Culture and Philosophy, being in the Greek Empire of the 5th century BCE, during Greece’s Golden Age.

I am also sure that you didn’t understand how. And I agree with you.

Do you want to hear the craziest part of all this? It was a lot more than 2,500 years!

What if I told you that the Golden Age wasn’t the most influential period for the entire Mediterranean and…

After a 2019 Stack Overflow survey, JavaScript’s programming language shocked the world by being awarded the title of the best and most popular in the world. Almost 70% of all programmers are using it for the ‘code-writing.’

The Newfoundland Cod was one of the most common and abundant marine species in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. However, the story of the people’s evil judgment and unsustainable use of resources, which led to their collapse, is something more than frustrating.

The species’ morphology and characteristics were not helpful in terms of being easily…

After four long years, Donald Trump has left the White House of Washington D.C., and Joseph R. Biden has been sworn in as the next and 46th president of the United States; it was clear even after the 2020 election, but the inauguration day puts the nail in the coffin for undemocratic and unsubstantiated claims of a fraudulent election.

The question is: what happens in such a divided, mourning, hopeless, drained, and frustrated country after such a refreshing change in a moment of crisis?

Given the circumstances and the recent announcement of 400,000 American deaths from the pandemic, this inauguration…

In Honour of Dr. Martin Luther King.

Going through all the legendary leaders throughout the course of Antiquity, the Medieval Times and the Modern Era, it’s easy to understand that the most frequent strategy was engaging at a type of war with the government.

From a communist revolt in the former American island of Cuba to the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020 after the murder of George Floyd, the way to go was to protest and go against the authorities.
