The Golden Verses Of The Stoic

Seneca and Epictetus refer to the Golden Verses of Pythagoras , which happens to provide a good framework for developing a daily routine, bookended by morning and evening contemplative practices. Zeno of Citium , who founded Stoicism in 301 BC, expressed his doctrines in notoriously terse arguments and concise maxims.  However, Chrysippus, the third head of the Stoic school, wrote over 700 books fleshing these ideas out and adding complex arguments to support them. 

Content Creation -- The Daily Way

Are you forever chopping at and changing your text?

Use the following tips to structure your writing up front, so your message isn’t buried deep in your post:

  1. Write your headline first. Include a compelling reason why anyone should read your content.
  2. Then write your subheads. These will help structure your post.
  3. Don’t forget captions. People are more likely to read your captions than your copy, so don’t miss this opportunity to communicate!
  4. Delight with your opening paragraph. Remember, your opening paragraph has to draw your readers into your story. Each sentence has to make them want to read the next.
  5. Energize with your closing paragraph. Make sure you write a few kick-ass lines that inspire your readers to take action or change their beliefs.
  6. Create fascinating bullet points. Most people won’t read every word of your content. They’ll scan the headlines and the bullet points.
  7. Don’t disappoint. Remember the compelling reason in your headline? Make sure you deliver on it.
