This post is about books that the Realvolve Team has come across that have dramatically impacted our lives. We'll be adding to this list from time to time. Here is our first one. Enjoy!
But regardless of your approach to life and business (whether cautious or adventurous) - stuff is going to happen...and it's how we react that determines our success and peace and growth.
I've long been a fan of stoicism. It's how I approach life and in my opinion should be taught to all business people before technology and marketing.
So the concept of this philosophy was not new to me - but it turned out to be a fresh perspective that has helped me a lot. It centers on actionable lessons and tactics from stoicism.
"It’s simple: a method and a framework for understanding, appreciating, and acting upon the obstacles life throws at us. "
Books like this are the best kind of book for me because they lead to other books. After only a few pages, the author makes his point effectively and moves to the next point. It reads like a timeless book, but is also very clean and modern.
We're not the only one who loves it. Here are just a few of many:
“Follow these precepts and you will revolutionize your life. Read this book!”
—Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art and Gates of Fire
“A book for the bedside of every future–and current–leader in the world.”
—Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of Power and Mastery
“Ryan Holiday has written a brilliant and engaging book, well beyond his years…It is invaluable.”
—Honorable Frederic Block, Judge, U.S. District Court
Seriously, check out the book.
