To Be Thought Foolish and Stupid
MAY 7, 2012


tags: Epictetusfocusmasteryright question




“If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.”- That’s the original from Epictetus(55 AD to 135 AD)

Here are some possible updates:

“If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid by those parts of yourself who are afraid to go against _______________

“If you want to be creative beyond your day-job, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.”

“If you want to explore and experiment in your area of creativity using money you should spend on what others think you should, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.”

“If you want to trust yourself and follow your inner calling, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.”

“If you want to keep on trying when everyone else knows for sure that all is hopeless, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.”

“If you want to hold to high standards rather than rush to tried-and-true low standards, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.”

If you want to engage in creative efforts that are not tied to money or advancement, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.”

Do you have other suggestions for what Epictetus might observe/declare if he was looking at the life of Creatives today?
