Um dos melhores livros que já li. O estoico diário me ajudou a começar a pensar com mais clareza sobre as circunstâncias, impressões, dilemas da vida e me fez mudar meus pensamentos para tornar minha mente mais sólida, objetiva e precisa.
It makes me learn and think daily!

Though they are in English they are firmly aimed at a US audience. They are full of references to Lincoln, Washington and other individuals from the short history of the United States. This is jarring and an annoyance. With a wealth of history to choose from it's a shame that the author was unable to find better common reference points for English speakers.
The 366 meditations offer a page a day of stoic wisdom. No complaints so far it's all been good stuff, some has made me think again and been helpful. I think I am going to like stoicism.
The Stoics had the view that life can be very difficult!
Stoicism has just a few central teachings. It sets out to remind us of how unpredictable the world can be. How brief our moment of life is. How to be steadfast, and strong, and in control of yourself. And finally, that the source of our dissatisfaction lies in our impulsive dependency on our reflexive senses rather than logic.
Stoicism doesn’t concern itself with complicated theories about the world, but with helping us overcome destructive emotions and act on what can be acted upon. It’s built for action, not endless debate.
Stoics take time each day to look inwards and reflect on our shortcomings and review how the day went and see if there is anything we could have done better. Doing this daily helps us to refine our habits towards what we really want to do with our lives, pushes us to do more and see obstacles as something to be overcome.
I havent made a huge study of the stoics yet but what I have discovered has been good and is helping me to give life direction and feel a sense of purpose. I already feel more in control and satisfied because of it.
This book is more self-help than all the other self-help books put together. It's not 'preachy' just practical. The format is a ideal. Each day of the year has a quote from a famous Stoic and brief comment on the quote. It doesn't tell you 'do this and that will happen'. It asks you to ask questions of yourself. Two or three minutes reading in the morning and a whole day of thinking. You will get out of this what you put into it. If you're new to Stoicism the views may surprise you. If you're an old hand Stoic it's a great way to start the day.
This book could change your life. To what degree is up to you.
In this book grandads Seneca, Epictetus and grumpy uncle Marcus will give it to you straight. In their day it really was tough.
I read this book everyday and it has been a springboard into further philosophical research, something I’d never have previously considered.
I recommend this book to everyone, it benefited an angry, frustrated misery like me enormously. Imagine what it could do for you.
