The idea of discipline may sound dull, but the results it delivers are anything but. Everyone from football players to elite gymnasts to world-class musicians will tell you that the discipline of consistent effort and practice has made all the difference in their achievements. Why would business be different?
Yet many business owners I meet don’t recognize the impact that discipline could have on their business outcomes. This is one of the biggest impediments that I see to achieving dreams and goals.
EXPERT TIP | Gary Furr, Organizational Development Consultant:
Discipline is required to stay focused and produce the outcomes we are looking for in business. As a business owner, if you are going to dabble in your business, you are probably not going to achieve the level of success you desire. Dabblers rarely succeed at what they are doing. Full commitment and discipline are required.
Discipline is about goals and progress. It is about taking consistent action toward your goals. I recommend blocking off time on your calendar—daily—to work on three of your top priorities. Results are achieved with focus one step at a time. More practical tips for using discipline to make gains in your business can be found in Chapter 8 of my book.
