Today I was reading “On the Shortness of Life” by Seneca and I was thinking about one of the 8 ways he says people waste time, “going after no fixed goal.” You must have an end goal. Time is limited, you have to know how to use it properly.
Can you answer these three questions?
1. What is your end game goal?
2. What frivolous activity are you doing?
3. Which area of your life is going to make you more of a philosopher?
In high school the kids who scored the highest on the SAT were the smartest. In college it was all about who could maintain a 4.0 gpa. But studies have shown that people who are deemed the smartest, especially at a young age, are at a disadvantage when it comes to success in the real world.
