We assume that discipline, just like self-respect, is something that we either have or not. But sticking to a schedule that matters to us and taking away as much of the decision factor from the day helps us stick to a routine. If you brush your teeth even once a day, you’ve built discipline around dental care.
It’s just a matter of thinking – what matters to me? What is the one thing that I want to own up to? The interest that I want to accumulate into experience and proficient skill? What are the actions that I need to take to get me started so I can settle into a habit of learning and growth?
Discipline is linked to accountability. Find out what you care enough about that you would want to keep yourself accountable for.
