Our Insight Is Constrained

WE LEARN WHO WE ARE IN practice, not in theory. We are not as good as we think we are at just intuiting our abilities or by simple introspection. Our insight into ourselves is constrained by the roster of our previous experiences. We actually have to do stuff, and then reflect on it.
~~ David Epstein

Take Life In Stride

TAKE LIFE IN STRIDE. ENJOY THE sunshine today. It may well rain tomorrow, but that doesn’t mean you have to get wet in advance. For the future is out of our control. It is uncertain, and also vast. We have to be aware of that, yes, but we don’t need to suffer in advance.
~~ The Daily Stoic
