We have but one obligation

“What is your vocation? To be a good person.”
—MARCUS AURELIUS, MEDITATIONS, 11.5

The Stoics believed, above all else, that our job on this earth is to be a good human being. It is a basic duty, yet we are experts at coming up with excuses for avoiding it.
To quote Belichick again: “Do your job.”

Excerpt From: Ryan Holiday & Stephen Hanselman. “The Daily Stoic.”
