Learn how to think, plan, anticipate, and understand people by understanding yourself
"Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?"
-Morpheus, "The Matrix
- Are you looking for a new way to think about the world that allows you to not only make sense of this craziness but to protect yourself from it and get ahead?
- Do you want to learn how to think more efficiently, decide more effectively, and act more decisively in the face of incomplete information?
- Do you want to know how to think both strategically and tactically to navigate both inter and intrapersonal problems?
- Are you unable to forgive someone, the world, or yourself for something that you can't do anything about but can't seem to move on from?
Then you're in the right place...
The Stoic Street Smarts Academy
Stoicism is an ancient philosophy that teaches people how to live in harmony with nature and avoid negative emotions. It's not just a bunch of old sayings, but rather practical advice on how to be content, grateful, and balanced.
Being street smart is often thought of as something that only gritty kids from rough neighborhoods are, but that's a misunderstanding. Street smarts are simply the knowledge that you can't get from books. You learn it from the school of life, where every experience is simultaneously the teacher, the lesson, and the test.
The Stoic Street Smarts Academy will teach you how to use stoicism as well as street smarts so you can better understand yourself and others. The Stoic Street Smarts Academy is based around 4 skills you need to develop to excel in today's world: You'll learn:
- Cognition. Uncovering biases in your own thinking
- Stoicism. Navigating and mastering your emotions
- Intuition. Reading people's intentions
- Strategy. Making decisions based on probability and higher-order effects
This collective will be referred to as COSIS from here on out.
You want more out of life than what society tells us is enough. I know this because you're here.
We want more time with our loved ones, less stress at work, more money in our bank account...the list goes on. But it's not always easy or possible for us all by ourselves. That's why we need each other and why I created the Stoic Street Smarts Academy.
Who should join the Stoic Street Smarts Academy?
Stoic Street Smarts is a community for people who are interested in self-control to get control of the world. It's about understanding what makes people tick, how they think, and why they do the things that they do. When you combine these two things, you become unflappable and unstoppable.
We'll discuss writings, posts, and videos on topics like self-control in a crazy world, spotting biases in your own thinking or others', reading people and understanding their motivations, applying probability and perspective to decisions.
