Discipline is Remembering What You Want

David Campbell, the founder of Saks Fifth Avenue, said, “Discipline is remembering what you want.”

Your Self-discipline

  1. What do you want?
  2. How do you keep remembering that? 
If you can answer both clearly, you can be confident that you have discipline.

Also remember how Steve Jobs once prevented his engineers from taking  notes during one of their meetings, insisting that engineers would not forget whatever was really important. True, we seldom forget our true priorities.
  1. If your desires are strong, they will reveal themselves to you clearly.
  2. And you don't forget any of your strong desires that easily.

Just watch yourself a bit more closely.
