“Everyone can perform magic, everyone can reach his goals, if he is able to think, if he is able to wait, if he is able to fast.” Siddhartha.

First things first, a big thanks to you for taking the time to visit my website. Time is the most limited resource that we all have, and it’s essential we spend it wisely. I’m honored that you’ve decided to spend some of it reading my essays and short thoughts.

I hope you’ll find it worth your while.

I am a twenty-something thirty-something European guy (living quite far from Europe!) with a penchant for learning new things, reading, and writing.

I’ve created this space because I’ve got a lot that I want to express on many topics. This space is my attempt to define what is my life philosophy. Please keep in mind that this is a work in progress, and the more I study, write, and experience life, the more developed my ideas will become.

I’m sure that individual essays will change over time to reflect my new level of maturity.

At some point, the human race stopped appreciating what is very good. We have been concentrating on materialism and the accumulation of ever-increasing wealth. Our attention is up for sale every second of our waking day, and this is ruining our lives.

There is that feeling in the back of our collective minds that somehow, somewhere, something went wrong. Life wasn’t quite supposed to turn out the way it is.

Defining one’s life philosophy is something that everyone should do.

My approach combines continuous self-education, an unrelenting focus on our daily lives, and a healthy dose of Stoicism.

I believe that the best way to learn something is to teach it, and this is why I write. It helps and forces me to make my ideas concrete and write them in a way that is easy for anyone to understand.

Clear writing ensures precision in my thinking.

Remember, there are no one-size-fits-all approaches. Everyone needs to find their way in life. I hope that reading my way; it helps you find yours.

“A person who goes to a philosopher should carry away with him something or other of value every day; he should return home a sounder man or at least more capable of becoming one.” Seneca.

While I don’t consider myself a philosopher, I hope that anyone who reads my essays can return home a sounder person.

Enjoy.

Emanuele.
