That is me! If you took a look at my life on the surface, my routines, what I do, what I eat, how I live you would probably come to the opposite conclusion, that I am disciplined. And that would be a correct assessment, but it may not be accurate. I eliminate temptation from my life, so therefor I can be disciplined. So I feel that makes me undisciplined.
When you come to my house, and suppose you look into my fridge, you are not gonna see much, you will maybe 3 days worth of prepped meals, so mineral water, and fruit. My freezer, not many different frozen fruits and vegetables, that is it. My cupboards have seasonings, oatmeal, potatoes, and chickpea noodles. Noting to tempt me from cheating on the limits I’ve set for myself.
Now my discipline is to know that I’m undisciplined when it comes to having junk food, or food that I can’t contain myself with, like granola, trail mix, etc. These items are one serving regardless of the size of the bag. But if I don’t have it around the house, I can’t eat it! But when I go out, holiday, or find that I want one of these tasty treats, I can only buy the small bags because I will eat it all. 2 for $X pricing forget about it, I will get them both and I will eat it all. So that is my undisciplined me.
The same goes for accomplishing work. If you look at my calendar, I got everything scheduled out what I want to get done each day, and where I need to be to get these things to accomplish. I used to be the king of “I can do it tomorrow” the biggest production killer is having too much time on your hands. So I make a list of things I need to get done and before I can leave, go to bed or sit on the couch, they have to be done. If I don’t they won’t get done.
So when you know your weakness position it to a strength you have. I hate failing, I hate not finishing something I said I would. So by making lists and forcing deadlines on myself, it keeps me on track. As for my eating, I just stay away from what I know I can’t control myself to be around. Knowing that I can’t be around certain foods where I won’t have actual serving sizes, but bag sizes.
If something is not around you can’t have it!
