Difference Between "Would" and "Could"
Show Notes

In today’s Stoic Handbook podcast I discuss one of my favorite Stoic quotes:

“Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.”

– Marcus Aurelius


I’m really inspired by this quote, and it brings up a lot of ideas related to the cultivation of self-discipline and overcoming approval addiction. 

As I explain in the lesson, I find the distinction between “would” vs. “could” to be both a reality check and a motivational device to help us pursue what is most meaningful.
