Practice the virtues you can show

I stole this from the amazing Daily Stoic! Virtue is one of those words that contains multitudes. If you think about it, being virtuous is not doing one thing all the time, or even lots of things all at once. It’s doing all the right things—the important things—in those moments when they matter most. Which is every moment. Day [...]

The greatest professional achievement

Any significant/greatest/second-to-none professional achievement can be hard to quantify, let alone track it in an excel sheet.

Are we there yet?
