Marcus Aurelius

The purpose of this blog is similar to the purpose of Meditations was for Marcus Aurelius.  

Marcus Aurelius was a Roman emperor from 161 to 180 of this era.  He wrote Meditations while on campaign as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement.  The purpose of this blog is my own guidance and improvement in the areas of sports analysis, prediction, investing, etc.   

As sports investing is a craft, anything can come into play.  I value the scientific method and want to create rules and observations based on real data.  I want my conclusions and predictions to be based on reality and be verifiable when possible.  I always want existing data to support my methods and conclusions.  

I read parts of Meditations in high school and have read further portions of it in college.  He preached stoicism, rationality and clear-mindedness.
