Discipline takes us into an area involving the direction of a leader’s personal conduct or behavior.
As challenging as self-discipline is for each of us, one of the most significant areas addresses developing new behaviors.
In order for an activity to become a habit, the general rule of thumb is that it takes 21 days.
When discipline is truly applied, the result becomes a lifestyle of new behaviors. This idea is more than a habit or second nature. It becomes “first-nature.”
The time needed to develop a lifestyle of discipline may vary from one person to another, but when it happens, leadership expands to a new level.
