EP 084 The Skill of Indifference

We have the power to hold no opinion about a thing, and to not let it upset our state of mind—for things have no natural power to shape our judgments.

Marcus Aurelius

Episode Overview

Recently we posted an open ended thought in our WFO Life Podcast Tribe within the Future Focus Health Network and our pages on other social media. It stated, “In a world fueled by false social media lives and opinions masquerading as news, acquiring and practicing the skill of indifference has become a MUST.”

This generated a mix of agreement and disagreement concerning the premise/value of indifference. The above quote from Stoic Emperor Marcus Aurelius captures the value of indifference. In this episode, we attempt to unpack the thought further.

Let us help you create a NOT TO DO LIST.


Topics Covered

  • The genesis of the topic, indifference as a skill
  • Utility of this skill in our modern world
  • The difference between being apathetic concerning things that matter vs. properly ignoring things that don’t
