- For Beginners
The ancient Greek wisdom of the Stoics inspired author and podcaster Tim Ferriss to examine how fear curbed his success, growth and well-being. In the process, Ferriss created a simple three-page formula for “fear-setting,” or confronting and assessing your worst fears. getAbstract recommends his rational, useful method for naming, and possibly surmounting, the phobias and anxieties that could be holding you back.
