I've found that this classic work, Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, to be somewhat sage advice from the life of a simple yet extraordinary man that has value and worth in the pursuit of understanding his philosophy of truths that is common to human beings, and can be most applicable to us today. If you are in business or management (I realize this may sound cliche'), these ideas may just be able to speak to you through the thick dust of the many centuries since they were first written.
