Exercise discipline

Discipline pays massive dividends. But it takes a while.

In the moment, discipline is not the easiest choice. Yet over time discipline can create an impenetrable fortress of value and effectiveness.

With just raw skill and desire, and very little discipline, you can achieve some impressive results. Yet without discipline you’re unlikely to repeat those results.

During a typical day you are awake for about a thousand minutes. Imagine what you could accomplish by focusing just half of them on a single, meaningful purpose.

That is the power of discipline. And it grows exponentially stronger when exercised over longer periods of time.

What areas of your life, of your world, could benefit from some added serious, sober, purposeful discipline? Today is an ideal time to make it happen.
