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.
