The Benefits Of The 3 Disciplines

'The three disciplines' are an operating system for life that allows you to be proactive and not victimize yourself with the most common challenges of human life.

Individually, the three disciplines contribute to a meaningful life. Yet when combined, they constitute a comprehensive approach to life which leads to progress for our rational mind.

  • Perception: it requires that we maintain absolute objectivity of thought; that we see things dispassionately for what they are.
  • Action: it relates to living unselfishly. We should work towards something larger than ourselves, a collective good while treating people justly and fairly.
  • Will: this is our attitude towards things outside our control. Those can only harm us if we allow them to.

Time Is The Most Precious Resource

Time is the most precious resource. Death gives a sense of urgency, as any moment could be your last. It humbles you and should also deeply motivate you to not spend your time thoughtlessly.

Every moment is an opportunity to improve, and to appreciate your capabilities and responsibility to do so.

People became philosophers when they began to question what guides their thinking and analyze their thoughts.
