The most surprising thing is that you wouldn’t let anyone steal your property, but you consistently let people steal your time, which is infinitely more valuable. If you want to learn how to live a good life, there are few sources better than Seneca. He’s one of the most popular Stoic philosophers, alongside Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus.
I hate to sound cliche, but this post changed my life. The concept of people stealing my time, the most precious resource I have, has directed me to focus on what's important. Thank you, Dmitri - love that we can share our thoughts as a community now.
