Episode Info: Today's episode -- Finding Meaning in Work -- is brought to you by a generous donation through PayPal. Thanks for your support. Consider donating through PayPal or Patreon to gain exclusive benefits I offer to supporters. We can find meaning in work through finding a job which matches our skills, interests, and values; adopting a new role at work; looking to make changes in the workplace or even finding new work; changing our mindset by having more gratitude and acceptance; reducing our expectations; having more work/life balance; spending less time at work; and recognizing that all jobs serve a purpose. The Stoic Philosophy Podcast explores the tradition of Stoicism with goals to inform, empower, and help others benefit from practical wisdom of Ancient Greek, Roman, and modern thinkers including Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca. For the Stoics, a main focus is pursuing virtue to attain a well-examined life through practical applications of Philosophy – acting with good character, using reason to form accurate careful judgments about the world, and achieving contentment. Stoic writers focus on many perennial human concerns and urge people to take action applying what they learn to everyday life. Self-improvement is central to Stoic thought – strengthening and improving one's mindset. Support through Patreon and Paypal Donate: http://justinvacula.com/donate/ Like, share, subscribe!
