This is just a short announcement about two upcoming books I’m currently completing.
This page will be updated with additional information about each book as it becomes available.
1. Small Habits, Massive Success
Benjamin Franklin wisely stated that “your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones” and with this philosophy, it is no surprise that his autobiography goes into detail on his own plan to cultivate good habits and virtues as a young man. This new book builds on this premise and outlines one-hundred and one small habits (daily, weekly, and monthly) of the most successful people within a variety of life domains to increase wealth, preserve health, and improve relationships. Small Habits, Massive Success will also highlight a number of evidence-based strategies to replace bad habits with life enhancing ones.
Small Habits, Massive Success will be released late spring in 2018.
2. The Stoic Exercises
The Stoic Philosophers outlined some of the best ‘mindful’ exercises in the history of Western Civilization; however, both University philosophers and laypeople have mostly ignored their insights for the past century. One exception to this trend was the initial development of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, as both Albert Ellis and Aaron Beck stated that their independent reading of Stoic philosophers influenced their approach more than their earlier psychological training.
More recently, select organizations such as the NFL and a few fortune 500 companies have realized that the insights of thinkers like Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, Seneca, as well as other Stoics, have much to say about living an ethical, productive, and meaningful life in the 21st century and this would help not just their executive team, but their entire workforce.
The Stoic Exercises will highlight the most important questions and ‘thought exercises’ from Stoicism in a lively, engaging way and give additional modern insights on how to take these to the next level to live the best possible life.
The Stoic Exercises will be released late 2018.
