The Hidden Benefits of Discipline
September 15, 2009 at 12:13 pm 0
This morning I was thinking about some of my role models. Specifically I was thinking about older people that achieved the life they wanted – and I realized that they all had a huge amount of discipline. I thought about their habits and patterns, and how even in the later stages of their lives they stick to a steady routine that keeps them healthy and happy. Sure, they are humans, so they splurge on occasion too, but for the most part they know their limits. It seems like we get messages everyday to do new adventurous things – like spend a little more money on a super fancy lunch, skip our exercises and go to the movies instead, forgo cleaning the house for drinks with friends on a patio - but there seems to be a hidden value in discipline that is easily overlooked. Sometimes discipline or routine seems boring – like eating a healthy and well portioned diet everyday – but that’s what often keeps us balanced. So today I’m going to think about all the ways my discipline has served me well. For starters I know that discipline got me through my masters thesis. I hated the whole proces...I wasn’t that excited about the subject, the huge amount of hours in the lab doing research were painful, the many, many revisions to the writing was tedious, and the finished product isn’t something that I am particularly proud of…but I made a decision that I was going to finish it and now I can say that I have a masters degree. The only reason I have my masters is because I had the discipline to go to the computer lab everyday after working a full time job, plug away on the computer, and stay until I had reached my goal for the day. I hope you’ll think of the ways discipline has served you well too. Maybe instead of thinking of discipline as boring and routine you’ll find it to be a major asset.
