January 1st, 2022. On how many levels did last year suck? What’s next? Locusts? All I know is I feel rotten. But it’s January, and time for a stark and sober look.
How, my friends, are we going to navigate this landscape? It’s starting to look a bit like Mordor. A few tools are going to come in handy this new year.
Philosophy will be a big help. Not just reading it, but putting it to test. When Zeno lost his entire fortune in a shipwreck, he founded Stoic Philosophy. When Marcus Aurelius lost at ping-pong, he was unfazed.
What else? Be extra kind to humans. Get outside. Build something cool. Join me this month as I explore this new world. I’ll include photos, videos, and music, so check back soon.
