Irvine’s summary

Chronic dissatisfation and attempts to achieve that which is beyond our control. These are the two main sticks we use to beat ourselves. Stoic philosophy helps us to overcome both these handicaps and concentrate instead upon striving to achieve what we can and being not just satisfied but actually joyful along the way. We can achieve truly great things when we direct our energies in the right direction.
