Daily Journey – October 9th: Set the Standards and Use Them

Daily Journey

It truly is amazing just how many times in our lives we get to set our own standards for performance. It is far too easy and quite lazy to assume someone else will set all your standards for you.

How about you take charge and set the bar yourself. You choose your goals, you choose the metrics you will measure, you choose what you want, you choose what will make you the most successful. You choose what will make you happy.

Stop hiding behind what you think others want for you… or what others want from you. Set your personal standards, set them high, and use them to guide you forward.

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!
