Pre-Work Review:

5 Proven Methods For Gaining Self Discipline

Count O’Rama & Coffeteria at Kribi

11 Pax discussed what it means to have self-discipline, how it’s best maintained and what we need to do to achieve it. Pre-work reading ahead was focused on the methods and approaches to gaining self-discipline (work focused article, but convo was clearly not about the office).

Key Takeaways:

  • Important to have a system, not just tasks or ideas
  • Minimizing distractions is crucial to getting results
  • Sabbath (real weekly break) time allows for regeneration, mindfulness, spiritual growth, family time and reflection
  • Breaks also allow for recharge, recovery and reflection – data shows more results
  • As mentioned David Goggin’s new book, Never Finished – Unshackle Your Mind and Win the War Within as great inspiration if you need a kick in the ass
  • Discussions led to/with scientific data on rats (importance of hope and support)
  • If you’re not achieving, forgive yourself, recommit and get after it!
  • Depressed Rats Fail Fast!
