Last week I was reminded of this by the daily stoic passage
In the end you are what is in your head. So what if you cut down on media consumption and worry about external events? Would there be more room in your head for other things? Say yourself? Or things in your control? Yes.
This is the same message of mark Manson’s new book and the 40 years of zen program and the core idea of stoic thought. Be very conscious of what you give a fuck about. Fucks are expensive cognitively. Free up headspace spent on external events, the past and the future and you have more resources for what is right in front of you. Your life.
