Repeat the Basics

This - slightly edited - interpretation of the Japanese Zen concept of “shōshin” which I accidentally stumbled upon on the web is certainly a good approach to Stoicism as well:

"shōshin  means “beginner’s mind”. As eager students, we always want to move on, move on. We always look up (forward) to the next thing and want to get there. But the expression “shōshin” teaches us to always return to the foundation. We must always do basics, master the basics, enjoy the basics. We all need lots of repetition"
