Preparing for Stoic Week 2013
Stoic Week 2013 starts tomorrow; which is my first. I did the pre-stoic week questionnaires and have read the handbook and it sounds very interesting.
It seems the organizers are trying to quantify the effectiveness of Stoicism for living a good life, so I’m on board with that. I found—as I tried to read the handbook PDF on my phone while commuting to work on the bus—that the PDF wasn’t easy to read or navigate from my phone. Being a web designer I took it upon myself to convert the handbook to an HTML page here for reference.
It’s nothing fancy but the text is sized to be easy to read and the table of contents is linked to the appropriate sections; hopefully people find this useful for referencing the daily readings and exercises.
I’ve been trying to implement Stoic principals for a few months now and have seen positive changes, but I’d like to see more. I hope by participating in stoic week I’ll gain some more insight and strategies for tackling the challenges in life.
