Day 5 on the Bridge of Discipline.

Most of what we do on a daily basis won’t matter in five minutes, much less five years. We do a lot that really doesn’t matter.
~ Pastor Rick Warren

Everything you will do in this year will come from what you do every day. Your year is made up of days…
~ Chris Brogan

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
~ Jim Rohn

New Year’s goals, resolutions, 1 word, 3 words… they’re all great. We can achieve because we’ve written it down.

Planning is important, but without implementation, well, it becomes an annual exercise in futility that can harm more than it helps.

So these bits of wisdom are written on 3×5 index cards sitting on my desk and I’ll read them frequently until the thoughts rise up every morning by themselves.

And since I have 2 more books on my list to complete writing this year, I’m re-reading Anne Lamott’s outstanding book, Bird by Bird, reminding me that writing is accomplished one word at a time.

What are you going to do every day to stay on the bridge of discipline?
