I smoke only 5 cigs everyday
I drink only on weekends
I check my phone during meetings only if it’s really important
I clear all my emails by the weekend
I eat desserts only on weekends
I leave work everyday at 6pm
Here is what discipline is not
It’s not merely a routine
It’s not managing an exception
It’s not about 90% restraint and 10% indulgence
Discipline is showing up every single day. And doing the right thing every single day.
And to know that whenever you slip, you go back to where you started from. Not where you left.
Discipline is not an option.
It’s a compulsion
