Action Item

This week we switch from talking about to-do lists to focusing on discipline.  Discipline is forcing yourself to do something you don’t want to do but will be beneficial for you to do. It doesn’t necessarily have to do with your job at all unless of course you need to start working fewer hours. But the overall benefit should improve your day and every aspect of your life. I gave the examples of committing to exercising and making the beds before starting work each morning.


Think of two areas in your life that could use a little more discipline. Figure out how you are going to incorporate these two new commitments into your life.  Keep it simple and try to make it as easy as possible for you to succeed.

  1. Marian,

    It was a delight to be a guest. Hearing my own voice and words in the interview was a great inspiration and reminder of why I’m doing what I’m doing. Thank you for inviting me!
