Summum Bonum – The Highest Good

I came across a phrase called Summum Bonum in my readings this week and not knowing what it meant, I searched. It is a latin word meaning “the highest good, especially as the ultimate goal according to which values and priorities are established in an ethical system.”

What is your summum bonum? While I dig deeper into this, I am happy with Marcus Aurelius quote:

“Just that you do the right thing. The rest doesn’t matter. Cold or warm. Tired or well-rested. Despised or honored. Dying…or busy with other assignments.”

Not easy but worthy of giving it a go. I hope you think of your summum bonum.
