Chris Marr

Here's how Marcus Aurelius has helped me to become a better team player at work...

“Doing your job without whining.” 1.15

“We were born to work together.” 2.1

“To care for all human beings is part of being human.” 3.4

“If you do the job in a principled way, with diligence, energy and patience, if you keep yourself free of distractions…find fulfilment in what you are doing now…then your life will be happy.” 3.12

“No one does the wrong thing deliberately.” 4.3

“If you seek tranquility, do less. Because most of what we say and do is not essential. I you can eliminate it, you’ll have more time, and more tranquility. Ask yourself at every moment, ‘is this necessary?’” 4.24

“Constant awareness that everything is born from change.” 4.36

“There is nothing bad in undergoing change – or good in emerging from it.” 4.42

“At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: ‘I have to go to work – as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for – the things I was brought into the world to do?’” 5.1

“If it’s right to say or do it, then it’s the right thing for you to do or say.” 5.3

“People are our proper occupation. Our job is to do them good and put up with them.” 5.20

“Be tolerant with others and strict with yourself.” 5.33

“Not to be overwhelmed by what you imagine, but just do what you can and should.” 5.36

“Good fortune: good character, good intentions, and good actions.” 5.37

“The best revenge is to not be like that.” 6.6

“You don’t have to turn this into something. It doesn’t have to upset you. Things can’t shape our decisions by themselves.” 6.52

“Don’t be ashamed to need help.” 7.7

“Frightened of change? Bur what can exist without it? Can any vital process take place without something being changed?” 7.18

“To feel affection for people even when they make mistakes is uniquely human.” 7.22

“When you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning remember that your defining characteristics – what defines a human being – is to work with others.” 8.12

“If they’ve made a mistake, correct them gently and show them where they went wrong. If you can’t do that, then the blame lies with you. Or no one.” 10.4

“To stop talking about what a good man is like, and just be one.” 10.16

“If you’re honest and straightforward and mean well, it should show in your eyes. It should be unmistakable.” 11.15

“It never ceases to amaze me: we all love ourselves more than other people, be care more about their opinion than our own.” 12.4

“Practice even what seems impossible. The left hand is useless at almost everything, for lack of practice. But it guides the reins better than the right. From practice.” 12.6

“If it’s not right, don’t do it. If it’s not true, don’t say it.” 12.17

“It’s time you realised that you have something in you more powerful and miraculous than the things that affect you and make you dance like a puppet.” 12.19
