The Trichotomy Of Control

It states that most external events are out of our control and the only thing we can control is our own thoughts and actions.

  • If something is inside our control, we can take the necessary action and create the change we desire.
  • If it is outside our control, then we can be indifferent about it.
  • If it is partially under our control, we need to take affirmative action on what we can control.

When an obstacle, a mental block, or a difficult situation presents itself, we need to pay attention to that moment and power through it with awareness, counting the grit as a +1 credit on your grit counter. This is a mini-success in itself.

The Best That We Can Do

By trusting the other person, giving them a benefit of doubt and keeping a calm and rational mind, we insulate ourselves from unnecessary worry.

Even if someone does something wrong, understand that they did what they believed was right. This helps us make our lives less complicate.

"That alone is in our power, which is our own work; and in this class are our opinions, impulses, desires, and aversions. What, on the contrary, is not in our power, are our bodies, possessions, glory, and power. Any delusion on this point leads to the greatest errors, misfortunes, and troubl...

Hedonic Reset

Life, when lived normally, creates a base level of happiness. We tend to fall back on this level, no matter what happens. The secret is to reset this base level by doing a hedonic reset, stuff that appears comical and absurd, but helps you understand life and its true nature:

The dichotomy of control

Because Stoics believe that true good resides in a person's character and actions, they would focus on what they can control, not what they can't.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
