Stop Running Around Already (Seneca)

Roman philosopher Seneca claimed that most people wasted their time instead of staying focused, or knowing how to truly live.

“For men who leap from one purpose to another, or do not even leap but are carried over by a sort of hazard, – how can such wavering and unstable persons possess any good that is fixed and lasting? There are only a few who control themselves and their affairs by a guiding purpose; the rest do not proceed; they are merely swept along, like objects afloat in a river.”
Seneca the Younger
