"Stoicism has been practiced by kings, presidents, artists, writers and entrepreneurs."
My job interview on Monday did go really well, as far as I can judge it. I will hear back from the company in the next two weeks, if we will come together for a 2nd interview to focus much more on leadership style.
We are more often frightened than hurt; and we suffer more from imagination than from reality. Lucius Annaeus Seneca - Roman - Statesman 5 BC - 65 AD
This quote is mentioned in the TED talk of Tim Ferriss "Why you should define your fears instead of your goals" that I have seen today (https://www.ted.com/talks/tim_ferriss_why_you_should_define_your_fears_instead_of_your_goals?utm_content=bufferf1fa2&utm_medium=social&utm_source=linkedin.com&utm_campaign=buffer). 13 minutes really well spend and a strong argument to look closer into STOICISM (https://dailystoic.com/what-is-stoicism-a-definition-3-stoic-exercises-to-get-you-started/).
"Tim Ferriss encourages us to fully envision and write down our fears in detail, in a simple but powerful exercise he calls "fear-setting." Learn more about how this practice can help you thrive in high-stress environments and separate what you can control from what you cannot." Give it a try, definitely an alternative way to see things, find your solutions and make decisions .

For those of us who aren't great with people, we figure that silence is always the safest bet. If you're an introvert, you spend so much of your time wishing that other people would just shut the hell up that you figure you're doing everyone a favor. David Wong - American - Writer Born: January 10, 1975
