You’ll Grow Your Discipline Muscle When You Get RID of This…

Discipline. It’s an old-fashioned concept, isn’t it?

It brings strict school teachers to mind.

But the kind of discipline we need as entrepreneurs doesn’t involve blackboards or homework.

We need self-discipline – the ability to overcome temptation and control our emotions – on our own.

Discipline isn’t so much about what you do, it’s about what you don’t do.

It’s about NOT turning on Netflix when you have a blog post to write. It’s about NOT reaching for doughnuts when you’ve sworn off sugar.

So how do you NOT do these things? Look at your environment — remove ALL temptation.

Don’t work in your living room. Work in a room where there’s no TV. Don’t stock sugary treats when you’re trying to kick your sugar habit. Fill your fridge with healthy treats.

Go ahead — start eliminating temptations in your surroundings. It’s a powerful first step to growing your discipline muscle.

    Thank you so much for these 60 second reminders.
    What a great way to start my day.
    With so many distractions and temptations constantly in front of me/us, it is so easy to lose focus.
    I’m most distracted at home. Time to declutter my home office area.
