The Middle Path

What is the “Middle Path”?

“A master in any art avoids what is too much and what is too little; they search for the mean and choose it.” — Aristotle

Key Ideas:

  • The Middle Path is the balance between too little and too much: just enough.
  • No one can tell you what the Middle Path is, you have to find out for yourself. It’s a constant learning process.
  • Uncertainty is part of the game, you can’t eliminate it. There’s no point in being too afraid of it because it’s not going away.
  • Embracing the Uncertainty is what differentiates the good from the great.

Questions for Consideration:

  • How can you find the Middle Path between ‘too little’ and ‘too much’?
