Yesterday @RyanHoliday's STILLNESS IS THE KEY came out. Another great book by one of my favorite authors. A MUST READ for every Pro Athlete out there (the same goes for Ego Is The Enemy). Ordering a few extra copies for my friends.      source
ALL Ryan's books are great, so get this one. My ONLY caveat is that the hardcovers are very nice as a set.      source
2/ Stillness Is The Key by @dailystoic This is a brilliant book by Ryan Holiday on the philosophy of Stoicism. It talks about the art of living a still life, where you are not experiencing extreme emotions of either joy or sadness. Must-read.      source
“In this book, through his masterful synthesis of Eastern and Western philosophy, Ryan teaches us all how to maintain our focus and presence of mind amid the sometimes overwhelming conflicts and troubles of 21st-century life.”      source
