Today I’m going to teach you a lesson from a book called “A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy” by William Braxton Irvine. In this book, Irvine offers a refreshing presentation of Stoicism, showing how this ancient philosophy can still direct us toward a better life.

I’m only going to share one lesson from this book, a lesson on how to
get through the grocery store checkout line much faster, just kidding,
but one very valuable lesson which will show you how the teachings of
Stoicism can help us be little more grounded in today’s crazy world.

Before I get into that, if you’re new here, or aren’t that new but still only put Feel Good English in your ears, I also have something for your eyes.


Something to read, as I send out weekly emails that contain short
interesting thoughts to thousands of interested English learners. If you
want to receive those weekly emails, go to feelgoodenglish.com and
look for the bear. The bear will be waiting for you on my website to help you sign up. The bear works for me for free, and the email is free too!

Isn’t that nice? Now enough bear talk, let’s get into the lesson.

Today I have some ideas from a very interesting book called “Predictably Irrational” by Dan Ariely. And the main point in this book, the overall message is that much of our behavior is misguided, irrational. Through research and study, the author has found that a lot of this irrational behavior is also predictable, which means there are very human, and natural reasons we behave this way.
