Day #4 of Resolution Week at The Napkin Dad Daily
In this quote it’s obvious that character = discipline.
Although I think of myself as a person of good character, I am not a great self-disciplinarian. I try to focus, to have lists, to have goals and stick to them, to keep moving in one direction for a set amount of time, to plan. And I achieve those things regularly. For about a day. Maybe a week. Then I forget about it. Then I come back to it. Then I forget about it again. Then something else becomes the priority and if I go back to those earlier tasks it would be because I am distracted from my current ones.
You know how diets sell to the same people again and again? I am sort of that way with list makers and project planners. I am too cheap to actually buy any of them, but I get the free versions and think THIS will be the mechanism by which I will become organized! Only it usually doesn’t stick. But who knows, this is a NEW year and I am a year older and wiser so why not try all over again, right?
Hope springs eternal!
