On I am grateful for the late writer M. Scott Peck. One of the concepts that I refer to often is from his book The Road Less Traveled. The concept of discipline described below can be used to solve many of life’s problems. I use this tool kit often in my life and highly recommend it to everyone. He describes life as being a ”series of problems to be solved.”
Tools of Discipline
- Delaying Gratification: Sacrificing present comfort for future gains. (Also known as Patience.)
- Acceptance of Responsibility: Accepting responsibility for one's own decisions.
- Dedication to Truth: Honesty, both in word and deed.
- Balancing and Bracketing: Handling conflicting requirements. Scott Peck talks of an important skill to prioritize between different requirements -- bracketing.
