Is Discipline Important?

December 9, 2011

“No HORSE gets anywhere till he is harnessed.
No steam or gas ever drives anything until it is confined.
No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled.
No life has ever grown great until it is focused, dedicated, DISCIPLINED.” Says Harry Fosdick

Do you agree?

    I haven’t finished a lot of things that I am suppose to because I am so into senseless and trivial stuffs! I slowly losing my focus and control.

    What should I do? 🙁

    I’d advice that you could stop procrastinating? I am procrastinating right now and have decided to stop. It’s done me good. 🙂

    I think being FOCUSED is more important of the three. Once you focus, dedication and discipline naturally follows. If you are unable to focus or concentrate your efforts to reach a particular goal, then you are also incapable of being dedicated to the task at hand and will never have the discipline to follow your plan to reach your goal.

    Yes agree. Discipline with determination and focus can get you somewhere greener (green pastures). And you can get as much wealth through these as honestly as you did the things you must be doing. Be consistent as well! =)

    i sure do. without it i wouldn’t be learning things the same way as i do today. living a life without any rules just makes life so complicated. so complicated indeed we wouldn’t know when or where to turn the next. everything would be just so messed up
