Self Discipline

Are you good at being self-disciplined? If not, here are a few tips to help you get started.

1). Pick one area to be organized in. A desktop, a drawer, a little area that you can be successful in keeping organized. As you manage the one space you will find that you will begin to expand the areas you are organized in. You will become more self-disciplined in picking up after yourself and keeping your space organized and neat.

2). Be on time. When a person is one time and not rushing in late to everything you will find yourself in a more calm state. Being self-disciplined means watching the clock and being on time.

3). Finish what you start. Practice with small tasks first. Example: if you empty all the waste baskets finish the job by actually taking it out to the trash bin. Pulling weeds? Finish the job by putting away the garden tools and disposing of the weeds. As you find small successes you will then be able to move into bigger projects.

Self discipline is like any other skill---it can be learned a little bit at a time. Pick one little thing and be a success at it and then add another. Don't be discouraged if you make a mistake, just start again, and keep trying. Never give up!

We would LOVE to here some of your tips, ideas, and suggestions on how you have found successful ways to be self-disciplined.
