MAIN TOPIC: Intersecting Self-discipline and Agility
From Peter Hollins (ideas come from his Build Your Self-discipline course)
- Thinking about the importance of controlling life and time and attention.
- Consider the point from the Flow book about attention chaos.
- Self-discipline is at the root of productivity as well as consistency (because autopilot doesn’t really work).
- Agility is also important though–we need to be able to adapt and adjust for the sake of others.
- When should I adjust vs. keeping the schedule?
- What things are most important to sustain discipline?
- Peter Hollins advocates scheduling your attention (goal is to create a habit, but be accountable to a schedule).
- Give the flex, but find the firm.
- No more than 2 days off in a row.
- Before I do “X”, I need to get my PT done.
