Daily Stoic: Think before you act

Today's meditation asks us to think about things differently when we ask "Why did I do that?" or "How could I have been so stupid." 

For to be wise is the only on thing - to fix our attention on our intelligence, which guides all things everywhere.

Heraclitus

From the explanation in the book, the Stoic argues that the correct decision making is with us all the time. But it takes exercise and commitment to make sure your mind is in charge. Not your emotions, or physical sensations or hormones.

For this last one, we even have a saying for it. "He is ruled by his little head".
