One should focus more of their time on seeking solutions for their problems than staying engrossed in the problems they are facing. ‘Can Do’ always yields more results than ‘Can’t Do’. Surely there are things that are in one’s control and then some that there are not – focus on what can be controlled.
Keep a problem into your perspective but only for identifying an appropriate solution to it.
So are you focusing on problems or their solutions right now?
I came across a phrase called Summum Bonum in my readings this week and not knowing what it meant, I searched. It is a latin word meaning “the highest good, especially as the ultimate goal according to which values and priorities are established in an ethical system.”
What is your summum bonum? While I dig deeper into this, I am happy with Marcus Aurelius quote:
“Just that you do the right thing. The rest doesn’t matter. Cold or warm. Tired or well-rested. Despised or honored. Dying…or busy with other assignments.”
Question everything that you read or hear. Challenge newer thoughts or hypothesis until one intellectually agrees to it. Reader’ principle aim should be to think about what he or she has just read and how it fits into their thought models.
Blindly accepting someone else’s thought process does little good in short or long run.
