Leading the Disciplined Life

I've always found I'm more productive when I lead a disciplined life.

For me that includes things like getting up early (and this means I have to discipline myself to go to bed at at a reasonable time), working out daily, and staying focused on the highest priority items.

Although I say this is leading the disciplined life, I realize from studying success habits, really that is simply leading a habitual life. In the end it's all about habits.

I also like to lead a frugal life.

I actually find the internet allows me to be a little bit more frugal, using things like free coupons (one site that has them is It has coupons and deals and allows users to post the ones they find. There are a couple of press releases on that service. See Coupon Codes

It's interesting that they use a pig as their logo, the same as PigSpigot,(an online service that allows people to send cards).

Lost w/o discipline in my life but I don't often think of it as being disciplined - my parents instilled good habits that have carried me over to adulthood so it is a natural way of life. You are absolutely correct in saying it's leading a 'habitual life.' But still working on the 'get-to-bed-early habit!' We need rest but there is so much I want to do in a day, not enough hours!

Hi Jim,

Long time no speak. Hope you are well.

I believe self discipline is indeed one of the the keys to success. I have studied this extensively and can recommend an excellent book to help to develop your self discipline.

It is called "Unleash the Warrior Within: Develop the Focus, Discipline, Confidence, and Courage You Need to Achieve Unlimited Goals" by Richard J. Machowicz and is available on Amazon.

Be well,

Chuck Siegel
