I’ve stumbled and succeeded. What can I say-I’m bipolar- but I found this quote a good reminder. Discipline in academics refers to intellectual specialty. Discipline, as in punishment, has monopolized the word.

“self discipline. Whether in terms of your diet, fitness, work ethic or relationships, self discipline is the number one trait needed to accomplish goals, lead a healthy lifestyle, and ultimately, be happy.”-Forbes

Remember linguistics…

Disciple> teacher

Discipline> to teach

Self-discipline> to teach oneself
