Cool, thanks!Great thread, marked NOTABLE and FEATURED.
I guess Stoicism can be called a skill, so we can expand learning how to lose to learning how to accept unfavorable circumstances.Learn how to lose ( whether material stuff or a friendship/loved one)
Definitely. Particularly during a longer trip, you can't help but change thanks to the new stimuli.Travel/foreign cultures.
Travel helps to break out of my daily routine. Once back home, I almost always have a refreshed mind and great new ideas.
There is a lot of wisdom in any culture built up over hundreds of generations... so yeah, a lot of value lies in learning from them.
Almost three years after starting this thread, I would add:
- swimming - great not only for developing your body, but also your mind as swimming is generally not something that you can do distracted (unless you wear waterproof headphones which kind of defeats the purpose of swimming.) I also highly recommend open water swimming, which is more invigorating than swimming in a swimming pool.
- surfing - I'm a newbie in this, but I don't think I've ever experienced anything else that humbles you more than the ocean. When you get pounded by waves, you realize how weak you are in the grand scheme of things. And maybe it's weird, but to me, it's an eye-opening experience that makes me a better, calmer and more understanding person. And of course, few things can compare to the fun of catching a great wave.
- storytelling - we tell stories, simple and more elaborate, every day. What happened to you when you were stuck in traffic last Monday. How a certain thing changed your life. How you met someone. How your product can change the life of your client. All of this comes down to the ability to tell a captivating story. The better you are at it, the easier cultivating personal and business relationships is.
- yoga - I find it incredible how everyone is obsessed about adding muscle, but so few are interested in achieving balance, mobility, and the ability to control muscle tension, all of which are IMO also crucial to fitness. After all, who cares that you can bench press 300 lbs if you can't sit comfortably in a full squat, keep your body straight when you stand, or balance on a single leg.
