For all my current readers, you can check out my current post on Cal Newport’s blog, Study Hacks:
Don’t Pursue Promotions: Contrarian Career Advice from Ancient Sources of Wisdom
If you’re new to The Ancient Wisdom Project, I publish a post [nearly] every day recounting an experience from one my 30-day experiments, where I select an ancient religion or philosophy and practice it for one month in order to cultivate a positive trait or virtue I find valuable.
Some of my experiments include
- Taking ice baths and studying Stoicism to increase my tranquility
- Attending Mass and doing Jesuit spiritual exercises to increase compassion
- Going to a daily Jewish group prayer sessions to learn about community
To find out why I started this project, read the About the Project page.
