This is not an attempt to rate such a book, but rather a Pick for me.
Ancient stoic mindfulness, preceding and inspiring contemporary self-help and motivational literature.
There is so much common sense in this writing, I now understand why Seneca is considered one of the most accessible and easy to digest philosophers.

Some self-help pieces of advice from 2,000 years ago, still applicable today:

✔ “we are all bound by this oath: to bear the ills of mortal life, and to submit with a good grace to what we cannot avoid.“

✔ “No person has the power to have everything they want, but it is in their power not to want what they don't have, and to cheerfully put to good use what they do have.“

From the father of mindfulness: “Present time is very brief, so brief, indeed, that to some there seems to be none; for it is always in motion, it ever flows and hurries on; it ceases to be before it has come, and can no more brook delay than the firmament or the stars, whose ever unresting movement never lets them abide in the same track. The engrossed, therefore, are concerned with present time alone and it is so brief that it cannot be grasped“

Written by Seneca (the Younger), a 1st-century Roman Stoic philosopher, On The Shortness of Life is a collection of essays about the art of living, mortality, reason, and the nature of time.

This is one of those books that everyone should read from time to time, just to remember the importance of time management. Highly recommend!

Nute I appreciate all lessons on the importance of time management. 13mo
