Seven Clear Functions of the Mind

From the excellent The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and The Art of Living -

  1. Choice - to do and think right
  2. Refusal - of temptation
  3. Yearning - to do better
  4. Repulsion - of negativity, of bad influences, of what isn't true
  5. Preparation - for what lies ahead or whatever may happen
  6. Purpose - our guiding principle and highest priority
  7. Assent - to be free of deception about what's inside and outside our control (and be ready to accept the latter)
