Pods & Pages [Week#4] - Stillness is the Key [Book Rec]

This week I'm recommending a book from one of my favorite writers, Ryan Holiday. In " Stillness Is the Key ," Ryan Holiday explores a crucial quality that distinguishes great leaders, artists, athletes, and thinkers: stillness . Drawing on insights from historical figures such as Confucius, Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, and more, Holiday argues that stillness is not mere inactivity but a gateway to self-mastery, focus, and discipline . The book showcases examples of individuals who harnessed the power of stillness, like Sadaharu Oh, Winston Churchill, Fred Rogers, and Anne Frank. In today's fast-paced world filled with distractions, "Stillness Is the Key" provides an inspiring remedy, offering a path to meaning, contentment, and excellence amid the chaos of modern life.
