Time and Discipline
Do we need more time? Or do we need to be more disciplined with the time we have? Kerry Johnson
Great actions that beautify the future requires good discipline.
Actions that provide resplendent future will demand consistent efforts, consequently, require the dissipation of good energy.
The human brain and its associated body are always comfortable with the status quo and will prefer minimal dissipation of energy and efforts.
The only thing that will prompt a man to consistently take actions and expend energy for the aim of achieving a beneficial purpose is DISCIPLINE.
If you don’t mind, can you mention it three times: DISCIPLINE (3X).
The statement you are about to read next is a little difficult for me to write, but I believe it is the truth. It is my opinion that many people are not disciplined!!!
How do you explain situations where people know what to do, but do not do it? It is not procrastination, it is indiscipline.
Even procrastination in itself is sponsored by lack of discipline.
I leave you to make your findings, but you will soon discover that creators of the future are disciplined people.
They pay the price of success in time and delay or deny instant gratification.
Are you not aware of the need to work on your diet and the need for regular exercise in the bid to lose weight, keep shape and have a good health?
If you do, then why are you not doing them?
You know what! My first suspicion is the case of indiscipline.
Many people are not disciplined enough to do what is right for them at the right time until their situations escalate negatively.
I have met with people, colleagues and acquaintances who ignored discipline at the right time until their health deteriorates into escalating frightening levels. Fighting between life and death, they now take drastic and radical measures so as to preserve their lives.
Time forbids idleness. Time also forbids actions that are not rooted in discipline.
Whatever is consistent with time is recognized and rewarded in time.
It takes discipline to consistently ignore a good football match (as a fan) and sit down to study for an exam. The outcome is good results.
It takes discipline to ignore cheap, unwholesome foods and snacks to consume only foods that will nourish the body. The result is good health and perhaps longevity.
Mark my words, if you are not disciplined enough to do what you ought to do at the right time, you will regret it.
Don’t consider my statement as harsh, I love you enough to tell you the truth as it is for time and tide wait for no man. If you lose money, you may still recover it; if you lose time, it is gone forever.
Just thinking why many people are not disciplined to the extent of jeopardizing their future rewards.
It is my opinion again that many are not disciplined because they do not value themselves. They scarcely understand what they are worth as a person.
Check people who do not value themselves; for such, anything goes. They are not consistent. They eat anything, do everything, go everywhere, attend every meeting, watch every film, sleep anytime, meet anybody, talk anyhow and the list is endless.
Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not stop wasting it on irrelevances.
You may not succeed in making the best use of your time until you are disciplined.
