Ryan Holiday is described by the New York Times as popularizing stoicism, a philosophy of personal ethics which has been practiced by Kings, presidents, artists, writers, and entrepreneurs. His career started at 19 when he dropped out of college at 19 to work with author Robert Greene. Today, he’s a NYT Bestselling author, with 9 books under his belt, including his latest book: Stillness Is the Key which hit #1 on its first week.

- Ryan’s personal habits and process during the creation process to find stillness and it doesn’t include meditation.
