Discipline is something most of us connect with “I have to do this”.
It easily connects the planned action with obligation and disconnects it from pleasure.
Maybe it’s also a reminder of the many things we’ve been told to do without knowing why.
When it leads to a lack of purpose, holding up discipline isn’t only challenging, it also can lead to stress.
It’s doing something and wanting something else.
Discipline isn’t the problem. It’s doing the work.
Dig in to see the want that lies behind the “I have to do this”.
If there is none, why are you doing it?
