“My powers are ordinary. Only my application brings me success.”
Each year I take time in December and choose three words that will inspire, motivate, discipline, guide, and enhance my actions and choices in the coming year. I’ve written about this before, and I use the process that Chris Brogan lays out in his blog HERE as a framework for my approach.
I mention this because this quote brings to mind the reason behind one of my keywords for 2022, and that word is ‘Discipline.’
It doesn’t matter what your intent is about anything if you doesn’t convert that intention into action with diligence and extreme discipline. In most cases, discipline separates the wannabe from the person who executes their plan. Likewise, all the resolutions and wishes in the world don’t matter if you don’t apply the actions necessary to turn those ethereal thoughts into a stone-cold reality.
