Happy first of the month. On the first day of each month we review the book of the month.
It’s not often that we get to reflect on timeless lessons. But that is just what “The Obstacle is the Way,” by Ryan Holiday does. The opening examples in the book draw upon Marcus Aurelius and John D Rockefeller or General Ulysses Grant. The common characteristic of these three men and many others, was an almost fearless approach to obstacles that presented themselves.
This book is a reminder that some things remain true, no matter what society is experiencing.
The book is based on an ancient Stoic philosophy, as outlined by Holiday. It focuses on developing a process that allows us to turn these obstacles into opportunities, instead of viewing them as crises.
