Act on your principles, not your moods. How the ancient philosophy of Stoicism can help us smash creative blocks and do our best work. By Paul Jun
This is a piece that came up in my studies this month. And tho I am studying what looks like esoteric, occult, and magickal things that [seem to be related to] non-physical things--believe me they are deeply related to the physical because this is the most spiritual place.
What author Paul Jun does in this piece is open up older philosophies and apply them to today. Friend and Teacher brings up this piece as a reminder from these ancient, pagan, philosophers.
Acknowledge the source of emotions
Find someone you respect and stay honest with them
Recognize there is life after failure
Read purposefully, and apply your knowledge
Challenge yourself to be brutally honest
Reflect on what you spend the most time on
Put the Phone away and be present = "It’s not that we live in an age of distractions, but rather an age where we are failing to teach and embrace mindful motives."
Remind yourself that time is our most precious resource
