Personal thoughts on Stoic philosophy.
This is a podcast based on my experience learning about the three main ancient Stoics:
Seneca, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius.
I talk about useful Stoic mental tools to improve the way we navigate life, to reach a deeper fulfilment and tranquillity in life.
I also Interview modern Stoics who practice this amazing philosophy and share their journey and advice learning about this amazing mindset.

#35 -The Best Free Note Taking App -Interview with Patrizio Bekerle (Creator of QOwnNotes)
 Download QOwnNotes for free (actually free): https://www.qownnotes.org/ In this interview I had the chance to talk to Patrizio Bekerle the creator of the note taking application QOwnNotes How often do you feel frustrated about taking notes and organizing all your ideas? If you are like me, you've tried all types of application and yet you can't find the best way to organize your thoughts.  Whether you are a writer, an artist or just someone with a lot of ideas hoping to declutter your mind and organize your thoughts, today's episode was made for you.  Patrizio is the creator of the note taking application called: QOwnNotes. QOwnNotes is an open source note taking application for Windows, Mac and Linux. Unlike many other popular note taking applications with QOwnNotes, you own all your data and all of your notes. All notes are stored as plain-text files on your computer, but unlike some other plain text programs, you can sync it with your phone and other devices through a cloud-based system. All of this sounds amazing, but unlike every other app who tries to tell you this is the app you need. Patrizio's app is completely free and open source. I was curious to get to know the creator behind QOwnNotes that I've been obsessed over, after trying every other app out there.  What I found is Patrizio’s amazing intention to simply add value to people's lives without the interest to make money out of it.  If you been losing your mind finding the best way to write down and organize all your ideas and thoughts. I truly believe QOwnNotes to be the best solution for that problem.

Hey, thank you so much for all your support, your time to listen to this podcast means so much to me.  Don't worry I'm not permanently quitting, but this means I’m announcing a pause.  This means that I won't be uploading for a few months. There will be one more interview before the break begins. There are several reasons why I’m taking a break, and some of them are very personal and related to family issues and a lot of adversity going on in my life.

“This is not your practice life, this is all there is, and the moment when that ceases to be esoteric hippie bullshit and the pragmatism and the practicality of that statement seeps into your bones, and you recognise that this life, is yours and yours alone and it is your one and only, everything will change.”  -AJ Leon  This quote comes from my favourite TED talk ever, make yourself a favour and watch this:  This Is Not Your Practice Life | AJ Leon | TEDxFargo   Message me to: mementothestoics@gmail.com
