Marcus Aurelius for the day - 4.24

Here's some more from my favorite Roman Emperor.

4.24 “If you seek tranquility, do less.” Or more accurately, do what is essential… Which brings a double satisfaction: to do less, better. Because most of what we say and do is not essential. If you can eliminate it you’ll have more time, and more tranquility. Ask yourself at every moment “Is this necessary?”
Marcus Aurelius – Meditations from Gregory Hayes’ translation
