Getting closer

Closer to doing the work that matters

matters because its needed

matters because it is a dagger thrust into the lizard- the Resistance

I feel his breathe on my shoulders as I awaken

I know its going to be a Fight

I know I am going to stress, want to buckle, escape

but thats when its the time to test how badly I WANT IT

success and freedom and knowledge that my work matters

That I am a PRO

Thats when it matters and thats the kind of work we need

Today I woke with the lizard bearing down on me

It was horrible

and when it rains it pours

Then something happened, Isaw my called ID light up…a great friend from the ranks of #altMBA

I picked it up and what transpired was a great wake up and soon I was trekking back on pace…here I am crushing keys at 11pm

Time to do some reading and prepare for a Strong start tomorrow

Everyday is a battle

and we need to remember that

Seneca “On Practicing what you preach”

Table for …two?

“I have to die. If it is now, well then I die now; if later, then now I will take my lunch, since the hour for lunch has arrived – and dying I will tend to later.” Epictetus


A wonderful however very difficult component of the Stoic life is acceptance that we are not in possession of the capacity to manipulate “everything” in our lives.

That makes us initially very uneasy

That makes us unsure, anxious, scared even

But IF, and only IF we embrace the FACT that there is much we cannot manipulate no matter how much we push against it

There lies freedom to pursue the things we can create, the change we can make

life becomes simpler and maybe under that lies Happiness

just maybe

So today death has not come, her chair sits across and empty

I understand its not my choice when she arrives

I pray its many sunsets from now

but ultimately I enjoy todays menu
