Occasionally you come across a quote that really resonates with you:

“There are two types of pain you will go through in life, the pain of discipline and the pain of regret.  Discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tonnes. — Jim Rohn”

Mr. Rohn’s captured the essence of the choices we make each day.  We can choose to focus on those things truly important to us.  Many times this will involve hard work and sacrifice.  Alternately we can choose to avoid focusing on our priorities. There likely will be some immediate gratification.  However, there’s a price — regret — to be paid.

Don’t get me wrong, balance in life is critical.  And as the old adage aptly states “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”.  However, each day we make a choice between discipline and regret.  Unfortunately, all too often, that choice is almost entirely autonomous.

With that in mind:

When you reflect on today’s events will your thoughts be of discipline or regret?

As always, thanks for the time.
