Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

Detached

It’s that time of year when work is really, really overloading are the office. Everybody is way too busy. We are doing way too many things and we aren’t good at any of them. Most of the things we do aren’t important.

Doing something isn’t always better than doing nothing. By choosing to invest time doing something, you decrease your availability from other activities. Before deciding to spend time on something, ask yourself if it’s worth losing the opportunity of doing every other thing else.

I do my duty as best as I can. But after I finish, I let go. A stoic warrior doesn’t concern himself with the outcome. He does what’s he thinks is right.

Like aiming an arrow at a target, you do your best to perfectly aim and release. But on its way there, the arrow might be interrupted with things outside your control. Things may appear out of nowhere and make you miss your aim. It doesn’t matter. You did your part. It’s senseless to try to control the universe. Detach yourself from the outcome.
