Discipline-If you look at the word you sort of think "Hard Work", at least I do. What does the word discipline mean to you?
Lacking discipline creates a gap in what we intend to do, and what actually gets done. They just don't match up. That's why I think that the Top 10 Daily Checklist is so important. You create goals and set the bar at the level that you think you can succesfully accomplish. 1/2 an hour of indoor cleaning isn't much, but if done daily and consistantly it adds up to 3.5 hours a week. 1/2 an hour gets me a check mark of accomplishment for the day. Crunches and push-ups may not seem like a "real work-out" but if done faithfully everyday, 10 push-ups= 70 push-ups for the week. They only take 2 minutes to do, so it's not a lack of time for anyone.
It's simply a matter of discipline. Even if we aren't feeling motivated, the checklist offers the opportunity to remain disciplined. Consider creating your own Daily Checklist of 10 Goals to Accomplish, or take a look at mine under the post "checklist".
Enjoy the October Day!
