Discipline – 3 Easy Steps To Daily Advancement
Many of us, including myself, we know how hard it can be to be disciplined enough to run a business from home or just running your own business. And discipline is one of the things we know we NEED to incorporate in our life when we decide to be our own boss.
However, LACK of discipline is something most people fight with, when they start working at home.
The funny thing is, when we have to be disciplined working for someone else we don’t seem to even think about – we just do it. And the reason is usually that it’s because we know EXACTLY what we have to do – we have a task. And most importantly, no discipline, no pay check!
So the first thing one must do to gain control over our level of discipline is to make a plan. Yes, the cure is called PLANNING. Very simple.
And here are 3 steps to do that.
Make a list of your TOP 3 DAILY ACTIVITIES.
Activities that are money producing of course. Could be contacting 5 new people every day. Invite 3 people to have a look at what you offer.
Write a blog post and share it everywhere. Make a video and share this everywhere. There are many activities that will lead to guaranteed results.
Some take a little longer than others. Find the ones that resonate with you.[mlsp-cta campaign=”weeklymarketingwebinarsorg” popup=”false” layout=”wide” align=”left” buttonstyle=”button-orange-flat”]
Make your WEEKLY PLAN.
Make a standard plan Monday to Sunday on a piece of A4 paper for example, like a schedule. You can divide the day in 3 sections, morning, afternoon and evening.
Fill in when you need to do your activities at what time.
First of all, focus on the 3 most productive activities. Make it really detailed, so you have no doubts at all as what to do each day. Plan each day of the week like a school schedule – the ones our kids have. They work pretty well.
My weekly plan is fixed and I stuck it to the cover of my calendar. That is because I don’t want to make a new plan every week. So Mondays fx I know I have to write a blog post in the morning, send out some training and engage with 5 new people in the afternoon.
Make a plan for the next 3 months.
This plan should be really specific as what to do EACH day of the given month. It could be that you make videos and have a new topic every day. Or write a blog post every day. Or have different groups of people you talk to every day. Plan that out for 3 months at the time.
Our mentor advised us to not use a common calendar, but instead a “poster”. A huge poster with enough space to write your daily plan. What we did was to print out one A4 for each month with dates and squares – real easy to fill in. When the 3 months are over, we make a new one for the next 3 months.

So to battle lack of discipline these 3 steps really help a lot. Miniscule planning is also essential if you want results.
A very good idea is also to find yourself an accountability partner.
It could be a friend, who is willing to help you structure and outline your plan and who will catch up with you once a week to make sure you do what you have planned.
You see, some people have that partner inside of them and some just don’t and some have a tiny one that easily can be fooled to think it’s in control, when in fact it’s not.
So, if your problem is disciplining yourself EVEN if you have a plan you should definitely get an accountability partner straight away.
And then go crush it!
