"On the Shortness of Life" by Seneca

This book is one of the three great works of stoic wisdom. Together with "Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius and "Discourses" by Epictetus, these are the sources from which we learn this ancient philosophy.

Stoics have inspired a lot of modern philosophers and we saw their influence in "Antifragile", "12 Rules for Life", and "The Obstacle is the Way". Now it's time to check the undistilled version so we can build our own conclusions.

Weeks 35 – 36

"The Hard Thing About Hard Things" by Ben Horowitz

Ben Horowitz is known as the co-founder of Andreessen-Horowitz (known as a16z). In this book, he shares all the not-so-glamorous parts of running a business.

There's a lot of information about how to start a busines. There's also a lot of success stories from business owners who "made it". But the reality is that there's a lot of hard work in-between.

Running a business requires taking a lot of difficult decisions. Some of them will be unique to your company, others will be more generic. And for the latter ones, you can prepare by reading this book.
