Re-reading "Today Matters" by John Maxwell and came across the following passage which will soon be a passout for our team:
The first ingredient of success -- making good decisions -- has no real value without the second, which is practicing good discipline.
Decisions help us start. Discipline helps us finish.
Most people want to avoid pain, and discipline is often painful. But we need to recognize that there are really two kinds of pain when it comes to our daily conduct. There's the pain of self-discipline and the pain of regret. Many people avoid the pain of self-discipline because it's the easy thing to do. What they may not realize is that the pain of self-discipline is momentary but the pay-off is long-lasting.
