Extra Points ~ Discipline

14_02_DanCapJackRetouch_001This week’s focus point…Discipline

The difference between being wildly successful in any career and not, is one of two things…lack of talent or lack if discipline.

This I learned from my mentor, Alan Weiss. My experience tells me I haven’t met anyone that lacks the talent to succeed….but we all struggle with discipline at some point.

I had planned on accelerating my Spanish skills…not only for comprehension and skill, but also to be better conversationally. The work is simple – 15 minutes a day on my Rosetta Stone. To say that I’ve been inconsistent would be charitable. It’s a priority, yet my discipline in sticking to this through lack of remembering and scheduling is a clear lack of discipline. I re-start tomorrow.

What about you?

What skill do you want to improve? What behavior do you want to change for the better? Want to be healthier, yet haven’t met your goal? The bottom line is that first it must be a priority and second you need to be disciplined. That means schedule it and stick to it. Don’t break appointments with yourself. If you find yourself doing that, it’s not a priority. If you find yourself slacking in scheduling and forgetting, it’s lack of discipline.

No matter your business or industry, lack of discipline will keep you from squeezing every ounce of talent and skill out of you.

¿Estás listo para tener éxito?
