Welcome to my website! While I am not an expert on Stoicism, I have found it to be a great tool that allows me to live my life in a better way. I thought it would be great to start a website where I can share my thoughts on stoicism, my own stoic writings, as well as popular stoic readings that would all help you live a better life.

The point of this website is not to lecture you or convince you of my point of view, but to get you thinking and reflecting on what you’re reading.

I believe that people these days don’t spend enough time reflecting or thinking deeply about life and its many values. If you finish reading a blog post and end up reflecting about what you read for a few minutes, debating about my point of view, or sharing your conclusions with your friends and family, then I would consider this website a success!

About Me

Jad Saleh


I was born in Lebanon in 1989, where I spent my childhood before moving to Montreal in 2007 to pursue an engineering undergraduate degree. I spent 9 years there studying and then working, before moving to Singapore to pursue an MBA degree at INSEAD (and experience warmer weather!). In 2017, I graduated from my MBA program and moved to Tokyo where I launched two small startups, learned a lot, failed, iterated and grew. In the last 2 years, I exited my startups, ventured into Motivational Coaching, and joined Amazon Japan.

I enjoy doing volunteer work with NPOs that support homeless people, road cycling, traveling, hiking and learning new things! My goal in life is to help people feel more confident in living a full life, and to try to impact this world in one way or another. No shame in trying right?
