Ways to think about discipline

Discipline is:

  • Sacrificing the things you want to do for the things you know you should do
  • Sacrificing the short term for the long term
  • Sacrificing the definite (these chips will definitely taste good) for the indefinite (if I give up junk food, there’s a chance I’ll be able to lose weight)

Discipline is sacrifice any way you spin it. But it’s the only superpower I know about.
