There’s an article in 99U9 Principles to Keep You Calm in Chaos – which provides a collection of teachings from Stoicism related to making ideas happen.

“We should hunt out the helpful pieces of teaching and the spirited and noble-minded sayings which are capable of immediate practical application–not far far-fetched or archaic expressions or extravagant metaphors and figures of speech–and learn them so well that words become works.”

Plus here is a good intro to Stoicism from Four Hour Work Week.
