Think the concepts of mindfulness and resilience are new?  Think again!  Stoicism, which dates back to Greco-Roman times, is "the branch of ancient western philosophy that focuses on mindfulness, resilience, creativity and more, all of which allow us to flourish".  "It requires being mindful, awareness and control, rather than being lost to emotion and random thought processes. Stoic exercises such as “practicing” misfortune and poverty help teach us that the worst case scenario is not in fact, the worst. And it’s great for business.  Stoic principles can build the resilience and state of mind required to rebound from knock-backs, so important in our new world of innovation and entrepreneurship".

"In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue"

"Qualities like kindness, compassion, honesty and hard work, they often matter more than technical skills and know-how. But when our leaders express a disdain for facts; when they're not held accountable for repeating falsehoods and just making stuff up, while actual experts are dismissed as elitist, then we've got a problem"

Food for thought.
