How To Act

- Never under compulsion, out of selfishness, without forethought, with misgivings
- Don't gussy up your thoughts
- No surplus words or unnecessary actions
- Let the spirit in you represent a man, an adult, a citizen, a Roman, a ruler. Taking up his post like a soldier and patiently awaiting his recall from life. Needing no oath or witness.
- Cheerfulness. Without requiring other people's help. Or serenity supplied by others.
- To stand up straight, not straightened.

Marcus Aurelius

I do not normally have the opportunity to consort with royalty, so this could be fun.

The art of doing and not thinking

Hi ThereSo first of all I want to explain - Obviously the title is a little incorrect when read literally. I'm well aware that most actions should have some thought behind them, and failure to think things through before doing them can lead to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may harbour undesirable consequences.I simply ask really, is there any method behind becoming a man of action.I know many of the articles on here touch on this in one way or another, but I'm curious to learn more.…See More
