Synopsis: In today's episode we explore an advanced method of premeditatio malorum (the premeditation of evils). After reviewing the basic technique - as formulated by Seneca, Shlomo ha'Melech, and Chazal - we read and reflect on a more extreme method, as articulated by serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk. This practice is not for the faint of heart, but is something we can practice on a smaller scale until we become capable of the truly extreme version.
