On the topic of your Monday post, about how much control you should have, I think 40% is not enough. I think ideally a stoic would aim to have 100% control over a situation, the problem is that often they can’t, so they accept what they don’t have control over. To actively aim for 40% is a little bit low in my opinion. The idea that you should keep 100% control of what you personally do/can influence is coupled with not getting mad over what can’t be helped is the coolest part of stoicism in my view, and your Monday post mostly addressed this.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
