Discipline, said David Campbell, is remembering what you want.
Most of us don’t relish the necessary actions or new habits that flow out of disciplined and planned new courses of behavior. But, almost everyone values the fruit of that discipline.
The need is to hold up in front of yourself that fruit — and the promise of more!
See, it’s the substance of good vision — a vision which helps you to keep at the acts of discipline when the motivation that started you on the new course is at times absent!
At Catalyst we coach our clients to help them keep doing what they committed to themselves to do, even when the motivation that fueled the commitment is diminished. Another value of having a coach in your corner.
