Believe me, it’s better to produce the balance-sheet of your own life than that of the grain marker.”
(Seneca, On the Brevity of Life, 18.3b)
… in this moment, what matters?
Is it how many dead languages you could translate?
Is it how many merit badges you got to sew on to your accomplishment-sash?
Is it random sports trivia? Obscure, nonsensical anecdotes?
Is it how virtue affected your daily life?
Is it how love influenced all the decisions in your 20’s?
Is it the stories of those around you, their accomplishments, and their great deeds?
Train in that.
