Up at 6 am, gone by 7 am to drive 1 hour at 10 am

Ok I know what you are thinking

10 minus 7 is 3 and not 1. What am I missing?


By definition, discipline means:

  1. training to act in accordance with rules; drill: military discipline.
  2. activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill; training: A daily stint at the typewriter is excellent discipline for a writer.
  3. punishment inflicted by way of correction and training.


One of the many skills I learned in the military and have carried with me throughout life is discipline.

To be on time is to be 15 minutes early. If you arrive somewhere at the exact time that you have to be there, then you are late.

Okay my 3 hour difference may have been a bit extreme if I didn’t have to get gas in my car and to get something to eat as well as coffee for the drive. Plus around here you really do not know what the traffic will be like at that time.

I always try my hardest to be early but sometimes that doesn’t work.

Discipline is a simple 9 letter word but it is often misunderstood. Do you have the discipline for your day? How does discipline help you?
