I got started with Stoicism when I went through a rough patch in life and I've been applying it forever since, in life and in work.
I failed last Sunday to post on IH even tho that's what I wanted to do, post once every week about a random topic that I can come up with but I failed to do this. I was hesitant to publish something this week but I know that that's what I have to do.
It's the right thing and all I need is the Courage to do it.
While this is a small problem I thought it would fit very well as an example and I apply this wherever I can.
Stoicism is one of the most powerful philosophies out there and highly practical yet it can be a bit hard to get started because it sometimes doesn't feel like we really know how to apply it to our own life or company so I thought I'd break down how it helps me every day.
Lets look at the 4 Cardinal virtues of Stoicism and an explanation where it helps in your company Journey
WISDOM 🧠 (Knowing what is good and bad)
COURAGE 💪 (bravery, grit, resilience)
TEMPERANCE 🤙 (moderation, self-control, self-awareness)
JUSTICE 🚓 (moral wisdom, impartiality)
Let me know what you think, if you think I'm talking out of my ass or what helps you to deal with the struggles that come with being an Indie Hacker in the comments ❤️
Thanks for reading 🤙
