First, decide what you will be and then do what you need to do.
Epictetus,(Died 135 AD) Greek philosopher
“This quote is one of my guiding lights, because it makes, from my point of view, the distinction from being and doing. I see with a lot of my clients that they’re working through something and they ask the valid question, ‘okay, what do I do?’ I think the answer must first be led from who do you want to be and then do what you have to do. That’s one of the things that I teach at Strozzi Institute in all of our courses. First, who do you want to be? And then do what you have to do.”
Richard Strozzi-Heckler, Founder of the Strozzi Institute
