The silver lining

Develop Discipline by Seeing the Good in Any Task

“Discipline is something we all wish we had a little more of. Sometimes you just have to do something you really don’t want to do, but it can be a great opportunity build discipline by finding the silver lining. If we were allowed to only do what we want, most of us wouldn’t ever get anything productive done. …

Stop thinking about what you’ll get out of something and believe that just doing it is reward enough. Eventually the simple act of ‘doing’ will make you feel good and your productivity will increase. Learning to delay satisfaction—or eradicate the need for it—will actually give you more satisfaction overall.”
