The Daily Stoic 365 Day Devotional - #23
Easy to Start, Harder to Finish
Can You Be Faithful To Yourself?
One of the best tests of internal consistency in action is setting goals for yourself. One of the best goals to have is to learn something new, or do something new.
This is the power of time-boxes psychologically. What’s great about time-boxes is that there is a defined end date. Experiments (like waterfall projects) are endless death-marches with no hope in sight.
If you scrum your experiments, there will always be a time-box. There will always be a time when it’s done, so that you can retrospect, review, and improve.
Or… for many of my experiments, you learn just enough to become proficient… and know whether you want to continue.
I’ve run many experiments in content. I’ve just completed my longest daily grind ever: 366 videos, one per day, for a year.
I’ve loved going deeper into the stoic literature. If you want to learn more about how to have a balanced life, the stoics are for you. Many of the comments and feedback have been great.
Feel free to begin your stoic journey here. Short videos to start your day.

I did another experiment years ago of 70 lessons that I didn’t learn in school. You’ll find these (much longer form videos) touch on topics such as:
How to overcome your fears
How the law of attraction really works
Reasons to live big and dream big
How I overcame depression
Mastering your emotions
Build self confidence
How to forgive
There is language too, since a lot of these were tailored to my MasterMind group years ago. NSFW!

Ready for Another?
I have many different ideas for content experiments that I’d like to do.
I’m curious though, what do you think I should discuss next? Leave a comment!
All the bsst,
