Aubrey Jeff confronted the stark reality of her downfall in the dimly lit room that echoed with the ghosts of her past success. The room was filled with nothing but the gleaming darkness hiding her bright past.

She used to be a successful entrepreneur, but she lost everything because of her bad habits and wrong choices.

Under the immense pressure of closing the deal, she’d taken a gamble, one that pushed the boundaries of professionalism and backfired spectacularly. The fallout wasn’t just financial; it eroded the company’s core values and strained relationships she’d meticulously built.

She had to give up her fancy lifestyle and move into a tiny, dark room that reminded her of how far she had fallen.

As she shifted through the remnants of her past, she stumbled upon a note that she wrote down from the Twitter feed of the Daily Stoic account.

The post was about the five habits that erode productivity. It was written that:

  1. You don’t wake up early (Marcus Aurelius)
  2. You focus on what’s outside your control (Epictetus)
  3. You don’t know how to say “no” (Seneca)
