I'm not a very disciplined person. This is not strictly true, When I'm in school I'm extremely disciplined. I maintained a 4.0 in high school, kept up my grades while playing a varsity sport in college, and took a full schedule of classes while studying accounting and working 32-40 hours back in 2007.

Outside of academics, though, things don't look as good. I hate to clean, I'm sort of a slacker at work, and I just may be addicted to the internet. Exercising 3-5 times a week is my most focused activity. I'm not overweight, but I must just have a good metabolism, because I eat an awful lot of junk food.

I'm trying to get working on my discipline, especially after noticing that on evenings when I just never turn on the computer, I get a whole heck of a lot further down my to-do lists.

I can't help but think that getting more disciplined in my free time would also help me push forward in my approach to OCD. I'll let you know how this all works out. Going to turn off the computer now!


  1. Ann, I completely hear you on discipline. I have hardly any. It's pathetic. I've been working on clearing out some of the electronic "clutter" - pruning down bookmarks, deleting useless social networking accounts, that sort of thing. I also deleted a bunch of apps off the ipod because that sucker was a big time waster.

    I've also found if I keep my computer turned off, my youngest child doesn't try to "type". And I too, get more done.

  2. I want to become more disciplined as well. I have the problem where discipline quickly becomes ritual. I'm working hard to find a happy medium. : )

  3. Discipline is difficult for me too. I feel like I would accomplish so much more if I focused more. Tell us what works for you!
