Improving discipline through practice

It’s discipline that gets shit done. Not willpower, and certainly not motivation.

Discipline is hard to cultivate, but luckily there’s a proven path to achieving it: practice.

You have to practice discipline day-in, day-out. It can’t be willed or wished. It has to happen through choice and brute force.

It’s why I blog every single day whether I feel like it or not (especially when I don’t feel like it). I also set my alarm to go off early - even on the weekends. And I just spent the evening in the pub with a load of pissed people whilst sipping on Diet Coke.

There’s also immense satisfaction to be had from doing the right thing. You should give it a go. It feels great.
