I admire Stoics' attitude: always being calm, cold-minded and patient.
More to that, Stoic Philosophy teaches us how to be wise. The practical wisdom we are going to discuss allows you to develop a right mindset, be reasonable and make right decisions. To live like a true Philosopher.
This is not your ordinary course on self-improvement or productivity. This is a workshop on how to become a Philosopher. It will guide you but it is YOU who do the work.
The course will help you to understand:
What makes you a good teacher?
Who is this class for?
With you more wise, effective and happy the world will become a bit better, don't you think?
Not for you? No problem.

|Section 1: Being a Philosopher|
Questions addressed in the lecture:
We are going to:
Here we are making a brief overview of the course's structure for you to have better understanding of what topics are going to be addressed.

|Section 2: Core Values|
A Good Man
Should money be considered to be something of value? Yes.
Should money be considered to be something of a great value? In this lecture we will get to the answer on this.
Here we discuss Honesty as one of the main qualities and values a good man can have.
Surprisingly enough Honesty can have different meanings: first is well-known and second is not obvious, but even more important. We will talk about both in order to understand why there is wisdom in being honest.
Equanimity is one of the most attractive and perhaps handy for everyday life qualities. We are going to learn more about it and and understand:
Unlike previous one, modesty is very underrated by modern people. Unfortunately, this is a big mistake, and we are going to reveal hidden opportunities and advantages modesty (or humbleness) can provide you with.
|Section 3: Money|
As we are approaching such a complicated topic (and I am sure everyone already has his/her own opinion on that) we will first take a study case - situation that can happen with anyone. Later on we will inspect it and make a conclusion.
Now we are going to:
In conclusion it is necessary to make our own assumptions based on what we already know and proceed with a strategy of managing tangible assets, or just money, we have.
I am going to propose a list of to-do's based for your review and considerations, and you sure could fix it and create one of your own.
|Section 4: Work and Leisure|
Two concepts we are going to discuss here: what does it mean to work hard? What does it mean to work smart?
And, of course: what should we do (and how should we work) to achieve better results?
This is a unique lecture where we will discuss only one yet very important habbit (or even you can call it "skill"): getting up earlier.
Questions to be discussed are: why we should do it and how we could do it.
Here we will discuss stoic opinion on leisure. Among questions addressed there are:
Procrastination: an ugly word for an ugly thing. We will talk on:
It is time to revise what we've learned about work and leisure so far.
And for a couple of beautiful quotes that could become your motto for the day.
|Section 5: People|
Let us talk about people.
Two sides of a coin: negative and, well, inevitable. We are going to talk about reasonable decision on how to treat people around us.
What is a stoic way to choose the right people and how we could do it on practice. Philosophical approach that can be mastered by you.
Here I propose to make a little comparative research of our own. We take a well-known proverb and compare it to a slightly similar one once pronounced by Seneca. But there is a major difference that changes everything. Now you will know.
Finally we are talking about You!
|Section 6: Life&Death|
Fear of Death
Life of a Stoic
|Section 7: Minimalism (to be continued...)|
On Simplicity of Life
|Section 8: Further Learnings|
Reading Material (updated on a regular basis)
I am a young professional and first of all - tireless learner, living in constant motion and aspiration to improve people's life experience. I am a Philosopher not only because I actually study philosophy, logics and rational thinking - but also because I am inspired by the way its principles help us to transform our life.
My motto probably will be the one said by Seneca: "Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power" and my main quality and advantage happens to be natural curiosity as this is where all wonderful things start.
I received my higher degree in Moscow State University named after Sholokhov, in 2005, majoring in Linguistics, Instructional Design and Applied Psychology. After that I continued my post-graduate education paying my attention to comparative linguistics, culturology and moral philosophy.
I was honoured to have an opportunity to be a Lecturer in my alma mater University, designing and teaching courses on Linguistics and History of English language.
The second part of my professional experience is working in top international consulting companies as a Talent Development and Recruitment specialist, helping people to find their places in professional world and discover the best way to develop their expertise.
I am also an aspiring writer and to improve my writing in english I write for my blog on Medium (see 'links' section), that is an addition to my source for writers, Writepls.
