Today, I found steadiness in many ways.
In calm fatherhood moments with my children.
In a meditative experience in a sensory deprivation tank, where you have no choice but to go within.

Financial independence thoughts
Go within, it is where you will find your most creative ideas.
As I lay in the sensory deprivation tank, I had ninety minutes to think in the silent darkness about my life, my goals, my future.
For much of it, I attempted to meditate and recharge my brain; however, at other times I had bursts of creative energy that I stayed with as they played out.
I wrote a chapter of the book I am writing with my sister, playing out the vision in my head, as if I was in a movie theater.
I realized that the concept for my blog ought to not be a Main Street project, but rather Finance $toic, which is why I have renamed my blog.
I have been working in accounting and finance for the last eighteen years, received my degree and a masters degree in these areas and it’s something I am passionate writing about.
Stoicism is newer to me than finance is; however, it is something that I am quickly becoming passionate about as it aligns with my personal values and, interestingly, it is consistent with the philosophy that I was creating for the fantasy universe my sister and I are writing a book about.
I left the sensory deprivation tank mentally and creatively recharged. While I enjoyed a cool brisk run and a sensory deprivation tank, some additional ideas for recharging your brain:
- Eight ways to recharge your brain
- Seven ways to recharge your mind
- Five simple ways to recharge your mind and body
Personally, my list of ways to recharge my mind and body include:
- Proper diet
- Maintaining a journal
- Spending productive time with loved ones
- Sexual intimacy with someone you love
If I can do these things regularly, it’s a lot easier to maintain steadiness, which allows me to make the right choices consistently over time = dramatic results.
