Issue 96 - 01 | The Secret to Self-Discipline

By Rory Vaden

“Today’s work environment has been dubbed everything from the Age of Distraction and the Age of Inattention to The Multitasking Generation. The bottom line is this: regardless of your job title, we are all trying to accomplish increasingly more with increasingly less resources—whether those resources are money, time, focus, or energy. How can we achieve success—however you define it—given these constraints?

I study successful people for a living, and I believe the answer can be boiled down to one word: self-discipline.

It’s not a breakthrough idea, and it’s certainly not popular. But it’s an old-school way of thinking that has unfortunately fallen out of vogue—and one that can yield measurable results when applied to the challenges of working in modern business.”
