Stoicism & Corona
What’s the best way to get through the corona crisis and deal with the mental stress induced by the pandemic? Rolf Dobelli recommends stoicism – the art of enduring hardship by strengthening the mind. “Our brain is an opinion volcano”, he says in his DLD All Stars talk. “Please put this volcano to sleep.” After his presentation he explores his arguments further in conversation with DLD founder Steffi Czerny.
Rolf Dobelli is a writer (The Art of Thinking Clearly) and an entrepreneur. He founded WORLD.MINDS, a community of the world’s most distinguished thinkers, scientists and artists. Dr. Dobelli received his PhD from the University of St. Gallen. In 1999, he co-founded getAbstract, the world’s largest publisher of compressed business knowledge.
