Things I plan to do :
Write every day.
Limit what I eat.
Turn off the TV or video game and read a book.
Write. Write. Write. Write.
What I actually do:
Eat more sugar and drink coffee with it.
A little work.
Shop online more.
Eat sugar more.
Forget my gym bag – again. Oh well too bad?
Watch more tv.
TV. TV. TV.
There seems to be some kind of disconnect but I’m not sure I can put my finger on quite where it’s at. Can you?
Do I need to join an Eastern Monastery where I would sleep 5 hours a night, eat 10 grains of rice a day, and meditate/pray for 18 hours a day? Is that what it would take for me to develop more self-discipline in life?
In this modern world, where the luxury and easy/bad choices are so plentiful, how do we build our discipline?
