A necessary trait in my resolved pursuit of simplicity in the upcoming year is discipline; a trait I haven’t exhibited at high levels in almost twenty years. Many of my successes in the years since are best described as the result of any combination of luck, circumstance, general interests, or various natural talents or proclivities that have served me well. I work hard, I try to work smart, but I don’t always work disciplined. Tonight, I’m reminding myself what it means to exhibit self-discipline to see if there’s something that I can learn from 15 year old me.
