Controlling the controllables via The Obstacle Is The Way

I'm currently studying this great Ryan Holiday's book and the subject of stoicism.

One of the highlights has been to revisit, reframe and take action on what we describe in the vernacular as 'controlling the controllables.'

“In life our first job is this, to divide and distinguish things into two categories: externals I cannot control, but the choices I make with regard to them I do control. Where will I find good and bad? In me, in my choices. — Epictetus

More great insights from Ryan and other stoics here.

Be remarkable.
