Principles for 2024

"Your principles can’t be extinguished unless you snuff out the thoughts that feed them, for it’s continually in your power to reignite new ones…It’s possible to start living again! See things anew as you once did - this is how to restart life" Marcus Aurelius

Principles for 2024

I'm practicing these 9 principles each day for a better life. Based on a mixture of stoic and christian thought - I'm working, daily, on each of these principles.

1. Don't Borrow Suffering

2. Be Present

3. Pause Before Reacting

4. Be Relentless - this is also my key phrase for 2024

5. Focus on Effort

6. Control What I Consume

7. Don't Seek Approval or Praise

8. Enjoy the Festival of Life

9. Remember to Live
