Moderation or Temperance is the 4th stoic virtue.
I intentionally left it until the end.
Candidly, I struggle with most with this being I am recovering alcoholic & addict. Thus, I cannot talk with an overwhelming amount of authority here.
That’s the ugly truth.
And while in some ways I have improved drastically, in others I have a long way to go.
This is a slippery slope as on 1 hand my addiction, when channeled toward the light, is a superpower.
On the other hand, it can be a looming disaster.
Just like the use of anger can be a very good or bad thing depending on how it’s channeled.
Thus and as a cautionary tail, this is what the stoics valued moderation or temperance as the 4th coveted virtue.
My message today?
Ponder on this and come to your own conclusion on how the usage of moderation can positively affect your leadership and life!
