Jon was talking about the opera singer, Luciano Pavarotti where the famous singer "was so devoted to his craft that it drove his discipline. If you are not devoted and you don't love what you're doing, then discipline is hard. But if you are devoted and love it, then you have a higher state of mind and discipline is much easier."
I think this is spot on. The more things (and people first), that we are devoted to, the discipline that is needed come a bit easier for these parts of our lives. Then as we know, the different things in our lives are connected to the things that really drive us. I know this hit me and got me thinking about some things that I need to keep working on. As I write this post, it's 9:39 p.m. and I knew I wanted to get my latest podcast episode out... which is all about this post & you can listen to it HERE. But I also wanted to get this blog post out there too. So, instead of watching TV, I got these things done & now I'm going to make some popcorn and keep reading this book that I'm fired up about as I know there will be tons more of things that I will be underling, writing notes on the pages, etc.
Go out and find this book... it's a life-changing thing that I think we all need to read and pull out the parts of it that work for us.
