Insight: Jim Rohn – Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment
Do you feel as if “Discipline” is another one of those words that has drifted from the “Good” lane into the lane of “whatever”.
Have we come to a point where whatever is easy, quick, instant and undemanding is preferable?
When it comes to database fitness, do you believe discipline is still a major ingredient for a successful outcome?
While I’m not going to delve into the depths of discipline, I can say from personal experience that there’s very little that’s easy or undemanding about keeping it.
As Focus 3.com says: “Discipline is one word with thousands of opinions”.
Some think it's punishment. Some think it’s obedience.
Is it rules? Is it enforcement?
Is it always doing the same thing? Is it always doing the right thing?
Is it consistency? Is it doing what you’re told?
Is it rigid? Is it boring?
Do you even get a choice? Do you just comply?
You must admit some of these terms, if not all, come to mind when you conjure up the word discipline. So how can I convince you of the importance surrounding discipline and growing your database?
