Daily Journey – August 19th: Corralling the Unnecessary

Have you ever felt busy but unproductive?  We  can get caught up in so many little unnecessary thoughts, actions, commitments and conversation that a day can roll by before we even know what happened.   At the end of the day we sit in despair, exhausted but with nothing to show for it.

The first step in corralling these necessary  elements in our lives is to set boundaries between what is truly needed and what is not.  We then need to stand for ourselves and our decisions and not let the whim and whimsy of the world have sway and influence over us.

Daily Journey is a collection of my thoughts from reading The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living.  My objective is to gain greater control of my emotional responses by reading and sharing my thoughts on stoicism with you all everyday over the course of a next year.  If you would like to explore these topics with me, and others who are seeking to gain emotional control I these articles to the Mastery of Skill closed facebook group and would love for you to join in on the conversation.

Live Skillfully!
