Some things are worth repeating… especially when you’re saying to YOURSELF! This ditty is an oldie but goodie, and although there aaallways seems to be work to be done, there’s always a smart way to do it. And a damn good reason why!
“Discipline is doing what you are supposed to do in the best possible manner the time you are supposed to do it. And that’s not such a bad thing.” -Coach Mike Krzyzewski
Structure ain’t a four-letter-word. Some of us run from it like the plague…we picture a list of authority figures who doled out responsibility, hard work, and timelines …with a side of intimidation. Believe it or not, their hearts were in the right place…they wanted you to get ahead in life…not just get by. The difference here isn’t just one word …it’s a whole perspective. Embracing it means rising above mediocrity. Being disciplined means digging in for the battle ahead, doing more than what’s expected with what you’re given, and focusing your efforts on ringing the bell. Don’t bet on the “right place, right time” scenario, the Fairy Godmother, or her cousin Lady Luck. Instead, build a strong hand by relying on yourself and your work will bring great fortune.
