On Stoicism


“Life without a design is erratic. As soon as one is in place, principles become necessary. I think you’ll concede that nothing is more shameful than uncertain and wavering conduct, and beating a cowardly retreat. This will happen in all our affairs unless we remove the faults that seize and detain our spirits, preventing them from pushing forward and making an all-out effort.”


Remember about the importance of having a plan in order to avoid chaos and being overwhelmed. For example Bill Walsh, a Super Bowl-winning coach would script the beginning of his games to avoid being caught off guard. The takeaway is that it is important to have a plan in order to feel more confident and in control in any situation.
