A book about understanding how ego stands in the way of living a good life in phases of aspiration, success and failure.
I liked the whole message and in particular the connection to stoic philosophy.
When applying these thoughts to my own life, I am inspired but also confused: Where is the balance between healthy aspiration to do „good work“ without doing it for the ego — and not even striving for professional success in the first place? After all, isn’t a „successful“ life often defined from a perspective of ego?
Overall, a very good book. Has potential to be reread every few years in different phases of my life, I think.
