We could have goals but without disciplined effort, they won’t happen. We could do some work sporadically but without disciplined effort, goals don’t happen.
The key to discipline, I am finding, is being consistent doing simple, daily tasks that, seemingly, are inconsequential. But, over time, they make ALL the difference. Most people have great intentions & start off on the right foot but they get bored with the mundane tasks &, often times, quit. The key is to have a clearly defined goal to keep us on track when it gets tough or boring. THAT is how we succeed.
