The process can’t be skipped, but it can be shortened.
Discipline adds value to every part of your life. One of the most important and overlooked is this:
Discipline is the shortest path to your most important objectives.
People who develop discipline do work others skip, eliminate excuses others make, endure inconveniences others avoid, find solutions others overlook, face demons others bury, and overcome obstacles others accept.
Skills grow stronger, problems solved faster, lessons learned sooner, mistakes corrected cheaper, and adjustments made quicker.
Because of their discipline over time, these people achieve what others desire, possess what others value, experience things others imagine, get opportunities others want, and have security others envy.
You can’t escape the process or skip steps. Only discipline will help you work the process in the least amount of time to achieve your highest priorities. Discipline is the shortest path, even if it’s a long one, because every other path takes longer.
Do the work.
