The one thing that I keep harping on … at home… at work.. and the one thing that I am finding myself struggling with now. My belief that a disciplined person is capable of being disciplined about everything is now facing a challenge… notably in my exercise class but its a challenge none the less. I fear that I might have lost the edge, that I am losing my grip… and I know I am over reacting.

Changing habits is not easy. Sometimes instead of trying to break old habits its easier to simply keep promoting new and more desirable habits. The way that I keep forcing myself to go to my exercise class at the end of each workday, even when my mind/body tells me that I would much rather go home and put my feet up with a book. When I eat my meals, sometimes I struggle to ensure that I am keeping the portion size small. I slip and slide but at the end of the day, I keep getting back on the ride.

This also holds true in the rapidly changing environment of my office where a major reorganization has left some dazed and some still struggling to make sense of all that’s happening around them. Discipline to stick to the task in hand,  discipline to stop procrastinating, to keep persevering, to keep delivering projects and meeting deadlines is what stops us from bringing things to a complete standstill in the prevailing confusion.

Its discipline that keeps our managers talking to us, over and over again, drumming in the new philosophy, the new ways of working. They keep talking and being excited about this, transmitting their energy down the line to the people who work under them. It takes discipline to bring about change in a systematic way, to iron out the kinks that are bound to happen along the way. 

Meanwhile, I want a vacation and a couple of good books to curl up to 🙂
