“Stillness is what aims the archer’s arrow, it inspires new ideas, it sharpens perspective and illuminates connections.”
—Ryan Holiday, American author, and host of the podcast The Daily Stoic
Being still seems like such a passive thing to do. How could the lack of movement get us where we want to go and accomplish the things we desire?
Without a careful aim we certainly miss our targets.
Without new ideas we are destined to keep circling back to the ones whose time has passed.
Without greater perspective we are unlikely to pursue paths meant for today and our future.
Without our connections and communities, we are left as lone rangers, isolated and alone.
How could you squeeze greater benefits out of stillness in your life?
Where can it act as a quiet place to reflect and improve your world in so many ways?
