I can’t tell you how many people tell me they could never work from home and get anything accomplished. “I lack the self-discipline,” they all say.

If I get a traditional job, I will likely have to wear panty hose again. hill richmond breast augmentation grand rapids breast augmentation
I remind myself of those critical matters whenever I start slacking off. Because I realize what a privilege it is to have my own business and work at home, I have to be disciplined – whether it comes natural to me or not. This skill can be developed.
And since many of you will say “The reason I won’t try to do x, y, or z is that I am not disciplined enough,” I will tell you right now that your excuse sucks. If you want to do something badly enough, you will discipline yourself. You will get organized.
I am not an organized person, but I know there are certain steps I have to take in order to move toward my goals. Every Monday, I come up with a list of things I need to accomplish during the week in order to stay on task and move forward. I use that list whenever I become distracted. If I lapse into one of my marathon Net surfing expeditions, I have to go to the list to pull myself back on track. That is discipline and it is organization. It all comes from one simple list.
