Motivation and Discipline

Thursday, November 21, 2019

Motivation is never is great supply. It always seems to be lacking. It comes and goes on its own whim and doesn't appear to want to stay around long enough for my goals to actually be reached. I'm working on the discipline side of this equation. I jump on the coattails of motivation and ride the wave for a few days, maybe even weeks and then the wave disappears and I'm stuck out in deep waters without a life raft. I'm trying to bring a paddle with me to at least keep me going.

I know that I need to get my butt in gear and ignore the rush of excitement that comes with a flood of motivation and just create and actual plan to keep myself doing what I need to in order to reach the lofty goals I have set for myself.

I am worth more discipline than I have shown thus far. New job starts in 2 weeks, more stairs plus a walk to the office from the parking garage so I will get in more steps and movement than I current get. December is my new "new years" where I am motivating myself to end the year with the same intentions as I would normally start next year.

    It's what you do every day that creates your future and that is from repeating the things that work comes the life we want.absolutely it's from discipline.
