I was reading this article about being more disciplined and it makes a good point that thinking about making a useful habit is better than trying to be more disciplined.
" Habits are easy to follow and hard to break. Discipline on the other hand sounds like work every day. Discipline is continually applied effort to achieve a certain end. Relax your focus and discipline falls apart. If you want to make sustainable lifestyle changes, they have to feel positive, powerful, and attractive or you will be doomed from the start. Anyone can be disciplined for a weekend, but if the goal is consistency and the creation of habits, which support you over a lifetime, you have to be enthusiastic about the process."
Interesting especially as I have to study and read journals....booorring!
