Congratulations on completing the lesson for Week Three. Now it’s time to start putting things into practice!
You should start using the techniques covered right now, if possible, and continue with them each day throughout the following week. If you think you might have any problems adhering to the daily practices, or need any clarification, get in touch right away with the course facilitator.
However, your first step should be to visit the Comments section below, as soon as you’re ready, and post your thoughts on the question for this week:
What are the benefits of recalling what’s under your control and what isn’t in difficult situations? What would be the long-term consequences of blurring this distinction?
Here’s a second question for you to consider, and discuss, if you want:
Are the Stoics right to say that only our own actions, in a nutshell, are truly under our control?
Go to the course Comments section now and post your thoughts.
If there’s anything whatsoever you could use help with, either technical stuff or the course content, please don’t hesitate to contact the course facilitator.
