Episode notes

How I Work is a product of the modern world - it’s a podcast, a format which didn’t even exist at the turn of the century, and a lot of the productivity tools and hacks are geared towards knowledge work for the digital age. 

So it’s surprising to hear that Darius Foroux, himself an entrepreneur and writer taking advantage of the digital space, lives and works by the ancient philosophy of Stoicism.

But Darious isn’t dogmatic - he’s equally inspired by Eastern Philosophy and employs Zen practices like meditation when he finds Stoicism too stifling. 

Darius shares how ancient wisdom can help you thrive in the modern world, and details how his experience as an investor has improved his thinking, writing and decision-making.
