With the constant temptation of instant gratification, discipline is a skill imperative for everyone to master. In Ryan Holiday’s latest installment in The Stoic Virtues Series, you will learn how harnessing discipline can help you reach your fullest potential. Although Holiday argues that discipline is not the only virtue needed to achieve success, it is an important step along the way.
To teach why cultivating discipline is necessary, Holiday uses a variety of successful examples from history. A few of these include the longest-reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II, baseball star Lou Gehrig, and Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius. Because the value of a virtue can be seen in its absence, you will also see how a lack of discipline affected the novelist Ernest Hemingway, French military genius Napoleon Bonaparte, and baseball great Babe Ruth.
Beyond learning about famous historical figures, you will learn how a few simple steps can help you develop the self-discipline required to achieve fantastic success in both the personal and professional sectors of life.

Citizen Kane is a semi-biographical film about a reporter with a seemingly insurmountable assignment. Jerry Thompson is given the weighty charge of discovering the meaning behind newspaper tycoon Charles Foster Kane's mysterious last word: "Rosebud."
The movie begins in Florida at Kane's expansive palatial estate. As he lay dying in his mansion Xanadu, he makes his enigmatic final utterance with a snow globe in hand.
Through Thompson's investigative reporting, clues are unveiled little by little that shed light on the story of this man's life, telling the story of a real person behind the legend. It turns into an inspiring personal narrative of an everyday man rising out of total insignificance and making a greater impact than he ever could have dreamt of achieving.
Thompson interviews friends of Kane as well as Susan Alexander, his mistress-turned-second-wife. The reporter then digs into the memoirs of late Walter Parks Thatcher, a banker who saw Kane's origins in a Colorado boarding house all the way into his financial decline later in life. The tale turns tragic as we learn of Kane's eventual corruption and estrangement from loved ones.
Though bits and pieces emerge to connect the dots, it's unclear if a full answer to that elusive last word will ever be found.
