Short on time? Or maybe you’ve already read the book, but need a refresh on the most important takeaways. In a quick, easy listen, you can take the main principles from Stillness Is the Key!

In his 2019 book, Stillness Is the Key, Ryan Holiday guides readers using Stoic and Buddhist philosophies to show people how internal stillness can lead to doing great things, personal peace, and happiness. The world is packed with a 24/7 media cycle, which can be overwhelming and daunting, making it hard to find any quietness; yet, Holiday remedies this issue by reemphasizing techniques used for hundreds of years. He uses extensive examples of notable, successful people throughout history who found this stillness he describes and utilized it in high-pressure and inspiring circumstances. From sports stars to politicians, Holiday shows a full breadth of people who benefit from stillness, which shows that Holiday’s tactics can be used in any career or personal scenario that feels unmanageable.

Stillness Is the Key not only shows that stillness works, but it also helpfully guides readers on how they too can achieve tranquility in their minds, which leads to the ability to handle situations that are externally chaotic. The world is not neat and orderly, but with patience and a quiet mind, each person can teach themselves to cope and even thrive in the disorder. The book astutely shows how the way people orient their brains can impact how they act.
