I drove out to Bastrop a few weeks ago to record an interview for Daily Stoic with my friend Ryan Holiday. We talked about Stoicism, art, parenting, and more.
Personally, I’m more inspired by Zen Buddhism than Stoicism, which is why I was happy Ryan looked a little more to the East for Stillness is the Key. (Shunryu Suzuki’s Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind speaks more to my artistic practice than any Stoic text, but I’ve read Marcus Aurelius’s Meditations several times and I really dig Seneca’s On the Shortness of Life.)
You can watch the interview here, or, if you’re more of a podcast person, you can hear Ryan tell the story about the first afternoon we met and how a man full of road rage threw a Big Gulp at my car!
