Every discipline that you make in your life will lead to another discipline. Eventually you will have enough links in the chain to have a well designed life. Maybe you start off small with just turning the television off and reading/listening to something educational an hour before you would normally turn the television off. You do that for a while. And then you decide to turn it off a couple of hours before you go to bed. Then over a few months or several months, you just don’t turn the television on at all. As human beings we have to set up disciplines in our life incrementally at times to push us towards new disciplines that will eventually become habits.
What are some areas that you need to start small, developing a few small disciplines to get you going on the right or new track? Just start small. The key is to just start. The mind is an amazing thing. By just starting you begin the process of turning the new discipline into a commitment and then in to habit. Who knows where these little changes will take you.
