We’re going to talk about an Idea thatdidn’t make it into the Note. It’s from a chapter called “Tolerant with Others. Strict with Yourself.”
Ryan tells us:“’Iam prepared to forgive everybody’s mistakes,’ Cato the Elder said,‘exceptmy own.’ Ben Franklin, many generations later, would put forth an even better rule:‘Searchothers for their virtues, thyself for thy vices.’ Or as Marcus Aurelius put it, Tolerant with others, strict for yourself.”
That’s Today’s +1.
Let’s be tolerant with others—looking for their VIRTUES and forgiving their mistakes.
Let’s be strict with ourselves—looking for our vices and getting to work on them.
