The Creative Introvert Podcast

Are you a creative? A maker, a doer, an (over)thinker, an entrepreneur who gets their energy from within, who enjoy their time alone, and who is most creative when working solo? That's exactly who this podcast is for. My aim with The Creative Introvert Podcast is... • To help fellow creative introverts find their inner superpowers • To teach the skills and methods I’ve found useful to get your creative work out • To showcase other inspiring creatives who will reveal their challenges and how they overcame them (and how you can too) • To let other creative introverts know they are NOT alone! ... unless they want to be ;) http://www.thecreativeintrovert.com/

I’ve just completed Stoic Week!

What the heck is Stoic Week you ask? It’s an online event in which people from all over the world attempt to live like a Stoic for seven days. It’s run every year by the Modern Stoic and basically provides a framework for everyone to join in with, for free, for one week.

I have another podcast that dives much deeper into this, over on The Seeker and the Skeptic, check that out if you’re interested in learning more about Stoicism - both the good bits and the not so good bits.

So for those who aren’t totally sure what stoicism is or fancy hearing my garbled explanation, here goes:

Stoicism is a school of philosophy founded in Athens, Greece by Zeno of Citium around 300 BC. Zeno would lecture to his students from a painted porch (stoa polikile) and that’s where the word ’Stoic’ comes from.

The teachings spread far and wide, influencing the likes of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, right up to modern day stoic bros like Tim Ferriss and Ryan Holiday, which is where I first came across the philosophy.

I'll be revealing the four reasons stoicism is so useful for creative introverts today, in this week's podcast.

 

Resources mentioned:

Modern Stoic

How to be a Stoic by Massimo Pigliucci

A Guide to the Good Life by William B. Irvine

The Tao of Seneca presented by Tim Ferriss

I haven’t vetted all of these, but you can have stoic fun with this list.
