What it means to be disciplined

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. ~ Jim Rohn

A plan for discipline

Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t. ~ Warren G. Tracy’s student

Step 1: Describe your work environment

  • How does my work environment make me feel?
  • What about my work environment would I like to change?
  • What does my work environment “look like” when I’m most productive?

Step 2: Identify and remove distractions and excuses

  • House work;
  • Wishing I were someplace else;
  • My roommate / house guests / family / children;
  • Too many tasks / feeling overwhelmed;
  • Having multiple tabs open in my web browser at once;
  • “Personal stuff”.
  • Researching daycare options 1 day per week;
  • Setting aside hours before your children are awake, during naps, or after they’ve gone to bed for your work; or
  • Making arrangements with a family member to babysit for a few hours over the weekend.

Step 3: Practice saying no

Step 4: Take action
