Few books in human history have so wisdom and charisma as Epictetus’ Enchiridion has. Every word of this book counts. This single book can provide the much-needed antidote to the frustration and discontent rampant in our society. Truly, it is the Handbook of life. I am your friendly guide Mr. Smart in your journey to explore the wisdom and life hacks of Enchiridion. Now, let us discuss the FIFTEEN lessons I have learned from Enchiridion, the Handbook of Life.

1) Focus on what is in your control
Stoicism in general and the teachings of Epictetus, in particular, are centered on this theme: Put all your energies into what you can control and show the Stoic indifference to what you cannot control. But, what is in our control and what is out of our control.
