I’ve struggled a bit in the last few months with maintaining consistent/healthy work habits. I often work myself to death, and then I’m burned out with little desire, or passion, to work. It’s such a roller coaster, why can’t I just grow up already?!
I told my girlfriend today, who was sitting behind me at her desk, “I wish I always had the motivation I needed to get things done.”
To which she replied, so very eloquently, “You don’t need motivation, Anthony. You need DISCIPLINE.”
Her words rang out like a choir of angels. Why in the name of all the things that are lovely didn’t I realize that? Why am I so seemingly short-changed when it comes to disciplining myself?!?!
I couldn’t help but think of all the Bruce Lee movies/documentaries I’ve seen over the years, and I really got her smiling after I said “WOAH, THE GRANDMASTER HAS SPOKEN!” in response to her words of wisdom.
She definitely helps bring out the best in me, and I am so grateful for that.
So kids, the word of the day is DISCIPLINE – and I realized today that I got work to do in that department.
Thanks for reading, much love!
