“A rational person can find peace by cultivating indifference to things outside their control.”
—Naval Ravikant, Indian-American entrepreneur and investor
I’m not a big fan of the word indifference. When used to describe a person, it conveys someone cold and uncaring. Few people would ever choose to be described this way.
Our current access to world events has all kinds of negative effects on our stress levels and sanity.
Examining which elements we control and those we don’t serves as a useful gatekeeper to dramatically reduce this onslaught.
Where would greater discernment and a healthy level of indifference help you create greater sanity and peace in your life?
