Welcome to the Stoic Coffee Break Podcast!
Over the last few months I’ve had many requests to create a group or community around the podcast. I’m excited to announce that I’m working on creating the Stoic Coffee Community. To find out more and to sign up to be notified, click here!
I’ve also opened the Stoic Coffee Shop where you can pick up some awesome looking shirts and hoodies with some of my favorite quotes and of course the Stoic Coffee Break logo. Look good while supporting your favorite podcast. 😉
If you like the podcast, it would be awesome if you helped support Stoic Coffee Break on Patron!
If you have a topic you’d like me to address on an episode, you can drop me line here.
Thanks for stopping in!

- 196 – How To Win An Argument“It is possible to curb your arrogance, to overcome pleasure and pain, to rise above your ambition, and to not be angry with stupid and ungrateful people — yes, even to care for them.” — Marcus Aurelius How do you win an argument? All of us have to deal with conflict in our lives. To think otherwise is completely unrealistic. But when we have an argument, what is our goal? What do we hope to achieve? To change the other person’s mind? To prove that we are right?
- 195 – Why You Should Care“Humans exist for the sake of one another.” — Marcus Aurelius. When you choose to live by your values, it means that you are only controlling the things that you can control, and not trying to control those you can’t. But does this mean that you can ignore everyone around you and live in ways that are only helpful to you?
- 194 – Find Your Why“So you were born to feel ‘nice’? Instead of doing things and experiencing them? Don’t you see the plants, the birds, the ants and spiders and bees going about their individual tasks, putting the world in order, as best they can? And you’re not willing to do your job as a human being? Why aren’t you running to do what your nature demands?” — Marcus Aurelius One of the toughest things in life is to work at a job we don’t like. There are plenty of factors that can lead to job satisfaction. Many of them are outside of our control, but there are some that aren’t, and those are the most important ones because they can lead to true job satisfaction, and maybe to finding your purpose in life.
- 193 – 10,000 Kicks“If something is difficult for you to accomplish, do not then think it impossible for any human being; rather, if it is humanly possible and corresponds to human nature, know that it is attainable by you as well.” — Marcus Aurelius What is the key to success? Why are some people able to achieve what they want while others languish? Today we’re going to talk about how Stoicism can help you to develop the skills it takes to reach your goals, and live your best life.
- 192 – Self-Sovereign“Be content to seem what you really are.” — Marcus Aurelius One of the hardest things in our lives is to be completely honest with our selves and with those around us. Why is that? Why do we hide parts of ourselves or lie about how we feel, especially with those we love the most?
