Tighten Your Disciplines



The late Jim Rohn was famous for saying, “In life, there are two pains—the pain of discipline and the pain of regret. The good news is we get to choose.”

If you observe successful people, you will see they are very disciplined. From what they eat, to how and when they exercise to how to plan their work and work their plans, there are systems they have set up to protect themselves from their own attraction to distraction.

What are you disciplines for learning? For improving? For developing sales? For taking care of yourself?

It’s easy for people to make new year’s revolutions and accept that because everybody else seems to not make it past January, you’re just a typical person.

Forget new year’s resolutions. Instead, make commitments to yourself about the few things that matter and then build systems of accountability with your teammates, your significant other, and even our technology to hold yourself accountable.

    Great messsage! FYI, just a note that it looks like the second to the last paragraph has a typo — it says revolutions where i think it was meant to read resolutions. Thanks!
