Discipline Is Just As Important As The Plan

Discipline matters just as much as the plan.   It does not matter how good the plan.   If the discipline is not there to do the work, the plan becomes useless scribbles on some paper.

It is so easy to be UNdisciplined.

Think about it.   How difficult is it to be …

  • Physically out of shape (round is A shape, but it is not IN-shape)
  • Overweight
  • Spend money we don’t really have
  • Spend money without a plan
  • Lazy
  • Spiritually unconscious
  • Ignore family
  • Selfish

I wrote a book titled I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. Writing the “I Was Broke” part was EASY.   The hard part was taking the necessary steps so that I could write the “Now I’m Not.” part.

I think that we should daily ask the Lord for an extra dose of dicipline. I know I need it. Thanks for all your hard work Joe.
