Seneca Rain has waited all of her life for the moment where she can connect with her wolf spirit and fully embrace life as a shifter. However, when the time comes and she is attacked by her packs alpha, Seneca's wolf becomes rabid. Her cruel alpha deems her togreat of a threat and abandons her in the territory of the Ruin Falls pack, a pack with a reputation for savagery. Seneca quickly learns that there's more to this pack than what has been spread through rumor. They may be savage, but maybe Seneca is too…

Ryan Holiday: Running With Stoicism - R4R 268

The Running for Real Podcast

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 1, 2021 77:42


There are four cardinal virtues recognized by almost all of the world's philosophies: courage, temperance, justice, and wisdom.  Ryan Holiday examines the first in his latest book, Courage is Calling: Fortune Favors the Brave.  His other books include the bestselling Stoic trilogy of The Obstacle is the Way, Ego is the Enemy, and Stillness is the Key.  He has a popular newsletter and podcast, The Daily Stoic, and on top of all that, he's a runner!  On today's episode we talk about philosophy, running, and how they intersect. Seneca talks about this word euthymia, which basically he defines as tranquility, but his definition is that it's when you have the sense of the path that you're on and you're not distracted by the paths that crisscross yours. Seneca was speaking about a basis of human life goals, but it can apply at any level, including being disciplined in your running.  Years ago Ryan was out on the track when someone came alongside him, “and now all of a sudden we're racing for no reason.  And I remember thinking, he has no idea how long I've been here; he has no idea how long I ran to get here. Why are we in this pointless competition with each other to prove nothing to nobody?”  Ideally, we should do whatever we're doing and not be concerned with what others are doing.  Ryan says that as a runner,  “just because someone else is there, just because someone comes up behind you, just because someone is twenty paces in front of you, to be able to tune that out and just focus on what you're trying to do, to me is the key part of the discipline of running.” The Stoics would say that anything you do out of compulsion is not good. I kind of see it as of all the things to be compulsive about, this is probably one of the least bad. Another discipline of running is consistency, which can slip over into compulsion.  Ryan acknowledges that he's streak-focused, but also sees it as a strength. For example, he says, “as a writer, the way you write books is by showing up every day and writing a little bit, and that adds up cumulatively to books and that's certainly how I, on a consistent basis, have published what I've been able to publish.”  He likes to do some form of strenuous exercise every day, but tries to balance out his compulsion to run by biking or swimming. What I love about running is that it's self contained and totally in your control.  Ryan believes that one of the things that contributes to burnout is working and “not feeling like you're making progress, not feeling like it's having an impact, not feeling like there's an end in sight, not feeling like you're progressing, not getting any sort of validation or win out of it.”  Running is the opposite of that because it's rewarding every time that you do it: “It's like you decided to run for four miles, you go run for four miles and then you come home and that's a win. And so what I love about running is that it's an easy win every day. Even the hard days are still easy compared to the rest of the world, which is so much more uncontrollable.” The courage to be oneself, to be difficult, to be unusual, to transgress norms or expectations, is just as scary and just as important in the long run as any form of physical courage might be. People tend to think of courage in terms of physical feats, but it's also “when you put yourself out there, when you do what needs to be done despite the fact that it's scary or hard or risky.”  Ryan tells a story about Margaret Thatcher, who went for her first job interview after university and saw a note that the interviewer had written, saying that she had far too much personality to work there.  That's true, Ryan says, she did have too much personality for the job, “but she was courageous enough not to become what she needed to be to work there.” There are two kinds of plagues. There's the one that destroys your life and then there's the one that destroys your character. That's one of Ryan's favorite quotes from Marcus Aurelius, who lived during a time of plague.  It was only during the current pandemic that Ryan realized that quotes like that one, which he had thought were purely figurative, were literal, as well.  Now, he says, it's “like, oh I see what you're saying. Yes, you can get Covid. Or you can get infected with something worse than Covid, which is whatever is making these people scream at grocery store employees or take horse dewormer, you know, whatever.  You can get infected with a different kind of disease, a different virus. It's actually worse because it makes you worse as a person. It might not have the same health concerns. But it's almost worse.” One of the things that I love about Stoicism is that it's a philosophy that articulates really clearly what our obligations are to other people.  For me, the idea that stoicism is this sort of insular personal philosophy really misses what was actually a philosophy designed to make one active in the world.

Eric Caroll grew up in an entrepreneurial household. His father did the “grind” of running his own business but always made time for his family, even if it meant burning the midnight oil once the kids were asleep. Eric appreciated his dad's clear-eyed focus on what mattered most. In his career as a product leader, Eric has strived to be equally clear in his vision - for his products, for his personal ambitions, and for his family's goals. Eric discusses his daily work rituals, how he reviews goals with cross-discipline teams, and the joy of creating a product that solves users' problems. Tom asks Eric whether he would prefer to have a good boss or be a good boss. Eric explains that constantly asking “why” is the key to building up your curiosity muscle. Tom wonders if you can apply product management principles to family life and Eric gives living proof by sharing his family roadmap for 2021. Eric talks about scoping your goals to fit your means. And Tom casually mentions reading some Seneca.

How should we act when we are angry? Anger is one of those emotions that we say is inherently dangerous and unpredictable. When we're angry, we are told to walk away or breathe to allow the intense feelings to pass. Yet, sometimes getting angry is actually a wise strategy, especially if we feel that we or our loved ones are in danger. Quick action is the better remedy. Our students should learn how and when to use anger to achieve the best possible outcomes. Join Steve and Dan Fouts with Shawn McCusker, Director of Professional Learning at Digital Promise, for a conversation about the power of anger and how we know when expressing it is the right thing to do or when it may get us into more trouble than we bargained for.

Marcus apologizes to those listeners who were expecting an interview today  - but he had 2 postponements this week. He is pondering whether to continue with the interviews and considers turning this into a solo podcast.This week - he talks about the Stoic concept "Don't suffer imagined troubles" and delivers an amazing quote from Seneca who tackles this subject head-on.Marcus continues to say that this bears real relevance to recruiters, who after all, spend most of the time fighting fires and dealing with uncertain outcomes!Seneca says:"It is likely that some troubles will befall us; but it is not a present fact. How often has the unexpected happened! How often has the expected never come to pass! And even though it is ordained to be, what does it avail to run out to meet your suffering? You will suffer soon enough, when it arrives; so look forward meanwhile to better things. What shall you gain by doing this? Time. There will be many happenings meanwhile which will serve to postpone, or end, or pass on to another person, the trials which are near or even in your very presence. A fire has opened the way to flight. Men have been let down softly by a catastrophe. Sometimes the sword has been checked even at the victim's throat. Men have survived their own executioners. Even bad fortune is fickle. Perhaps it will come, perhaps not; in the meantime it is not. So look forward to better things."

Massimo (figsinwinter.blog & @mpigliucci) is Professor of Philosophy at the City College of New York. He co-hosted the Rationally Speaking Podcast & was the editor in chief for the magazine Scientia Salon. He is an outspoken critic of pseudoscience & creationism & an advocate for secularism, science education & Stoicism. In Sentientist Conversations we talk about the two most important questions: “what's real?” & “what matters?” Sentientism is "evidence, reason & compassion for all sentient beings." The video of our conversation is here on Youtube. We discuss: 0:00 Welcome 1:10 Massimo's Intro: Evo bio to philosophy 1:40 What's Real? - Growing up in Rome, "Catholic by default" - Accepting the christian world view, but questioning it early. The Trinity, transubstantiation - At communion: "It doesn't taste like human flesh" - Adopting secular humanism & turning to science & philosophy - The limitations of secular humanism: "When it came to real crises in my life... secular humanism was not very useful... it doesn't help me to think in terms of human rights when my father is dying" - Stoicism as a practical philosophy of ethics & how to live a meaningful life - Hume & Russell - Some of the commandments "seem a little narcissistic & self-centred coming from a god" - Jesus seems like a good guy but the Catholic church has taken some awful political positions over the centuries & today - Not blaming Jesus but instead blaming patriarchal forces inside & outside religion - Antivaxx, conspiracy theories, alternative medicine - "I don't believe that any unfounded belief is harmless, ultimately" - The attitude of taking unfounded beliefs seriously crosses boundaries easily. Jumping from one mystical or conspiracy theory to another - Hume "A reasonable person proportions his belief to the evidence" - Faith as belief without evidence - The ony thing you don't want to do without belief is go to 0% or 100%. Bayesianism - Carl Sagan's It's nice to have an open mind, but not so open your brain falls out - Don't ask "is it possible?" ask "how likely is it to be true?" - The risk of dogmatic attitudes even amongst skeptics - People don't like being told they're idiots - Even a religious/supernatural worldview with modern ethics still presents a risk - When religious authority conflicts with compassionate ethics - As a secular humanist can disagree with Sagan or Seneca. As a Christian person I can't disagree with god or Jesus 21:21 What & Who Matters? - The Tolstoy fallacy "Unless there is a god you might as well go around murdering and raping" - Naturalistic ethics (Philippa Foot, Confucianism, virtue ethics and more...) ...And much more.

A lengthy episode!! We had planned to let the conversations flow but with the desire to make episodes more bitesized than this one with the foresight of then sharing the extended versions of various episodes to fans of the show at a later date! But, we just could not get rid of anything from this! I hope you all enjoy the discussion and energy through the conversation as much as we did whilst recording it! The quote we have chosen is a short but powerful passage from Discourses by the stoic philosopher Epictetus and revolves around the psychology of anxiety. If you love philosophy, stoicism and psychology then I am sure you will love this show and anyone can take a great deal from this episode! In a time where mental health, anxiety and depression are heavily discussed but also largely misunderstood this show can be a source of great value to improve your life! Want more episodes like this that involve lengthier discussions? Then please do support the show by spreading the work, leaving ratings and reviews etc so that we can see the value we are providing! Whilst this is a taster of those extended shows, we will in the main be sharing the shorter versions here and bring you the lengthier versions if we see many people taking value from the content. We want to bring you a guide for life! Breaking down the unique wisdom of some of the greatest minds that have ever existed proven by the fact that the teachings of the stoics are still in existence today! But so few of us manage to realise the true meaning and value of many of these great philosophical works within the context of modern society. In a similar approach to the Marcus Aurelius' Meditations for Modern Life podcast, but with the shared thoughts of co-hosts Adam Bates and Jamie Keeling adding the dynamic of two way conversation and their combined experiences through life! For most episode the theme will centre around a different piece of text or quote from a well known Stoic philosopher from those attributed to Socrates through the words of Plato, or to Epicurus, to Seneca or others.

*The 360-Day Year on Real Science Radio

*Today we present the return of a classic show. * Did the whole world once use a 360-day calendar? If so, why? From our archives, RSR hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams look at the Mayans, Egyptians, Aztecs, Indians, Sumerians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese, and the Hebrew Bible to answer the first question: Yes, ancient civilizations used a 360-day calendar. To answer the question why, one must keep in mind the sophistication of ancient astronomers. Nasa reports that in 650 B.C., "Mayan astronomers [made] detailed observations of Venus, leading to a highly accurate calendar." And the Encyclopedia of Time says of the Aztecs that, "they carried on and further developed calendrical traditions that had their roots some 2,000 years before their own time." Real Science Radio investigates the reason why the ancient world used a 360-day calendar and discusses a mechanism for speeding up the rotation of the Earth that in historical times could add 5.24 days to the year. See more at 360dayyear.com. * RSR on YouTube: You're invited to check out RSR's 360-day year program turned into this important YouTube video: * The Calendar is one of the Greatest Monuments of a Culture: Along with language, the calendar is one of the greatest monuments of a culture. Ranke, as quoted by Norman Lockyer (The Origin of the Year, 1982, Nature, p. 487) wrote, "The calendar may be considered the noblest relic of the most ancient times which has influenced the world." And in 1903 Emmeline Plunket judged (Calendars and Constellations of the Ancient World, 1903, p. 188) that interest in ancient calendars is a necessary part of being "interested in the history of the human race". * Would You Consider Purchasing a Rare Research Book for RSR: [See kgov.com/wish-list for the latest status.] Over at Amazon.com, to further our investigation of one of Bob Enyart's favorite topics, the 360 day year, we've created a KGOV Research Amazon Wish List. We hope to procure an important and rare research book, The Cultic Calendars of the Ancient Near East. The text of this book is not available online, and there is a used copy of the book currently available, as of January 2016, that is $600 less expensive than the other copies also for sale. So if you're considering helping RSR continue to press forward on this significant topic, then please consider purchasing that book by clicking on our Wish List link just above. And for shipping, you can use the address at the Wish List.

Yet his allegiance to a year of twelve 30-day months was intense. Of course, widely, great significance was placed on lunar-based religious feasts, yet these could have been observed within a solar calendar context (for example, the seventh month's New Moon). For a lunar calendar, like a 360-day calendar, unless corrected, would cause the seasons to migrate from winter to fall, and so on to spring. So while a lunar calendar readily supported the "New Moon" and other such religious festivals, and could help the especially astute person anticipate the strength of the tides (as Seneca reported in about 60 A.D.), a solar calendar would better enable mankind to accomplish pretty much everything else. Enormous benefits in implementation and planning in the areas of agriculture, hunting, fishing, civil administration, military planning, commercial agreements, political reigns, and in religious observations, would result from using a solar calendar. (For example, the annual rainy season coinciding with the melting of snow in the Ethiopian highlands led to Egypt's extraordinarily significant recurring flooding of the Nile.) In comparison with all that, the benefit from a lunar or 360-day calendar was minimal. Yet the ancient world adhered to their lunar and 360-day calendars. For millennia. Their loyalty speaks volumes. And if a man is to be a student of history he should listen to their voice. * Minor Note from Assyro-Babylonian Mythology: A text from the Neo-Assyrian Period describes a battle wherein Marduk defeats the Eshumesha gods and takes 360 of them as prisoners of war. Today's Resource: Real Science Radio 2018   Welcome to Real Science Radio: Co-hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams talk about science to debunk evolution and to show the evidence for the creator God including from biology, genetics, geology, history, paleontology, archaeology, astronomy, philosophy, cosmology, math, and physics. (For example, mutations will give you bad legs long before you'd get good wings.) We get to debate Darwinists and atheists like Lawrence Krauss, AronRa, and Eugenie Scott. We easily take potshots from popular evolutionists like PZ Myers, Phil Plait, and Jerry Coyne. We're the home of the popular List Shows!

Today, Tom Morris reveals one of the universal conditions for success. Drawing wisdom from the wisest sages of all ages, he shares the importance of having a clear goal or a target. You may dream big dreams, but if you have no vivid vision of your dreams, then you're simply going nowhere. As Seneca put it, “No wind blows in favor of a ship without direction.” Have a clear conception of what you want to do. Tom shares the fundamental insights relevant to goal setting. Apparently, too many people waste their time running after the wrong thing. Which is why it's so important to know thyself and invest in self-knowledge. Finally, know that you always deserve the best. DO NOT allow what is very good to keep you from what is best. Source: Tom Morris on True SuccessHosted by Sean Croxton.Follow me on Instagram
