"The speed of concentration is slow and/or stopped!" A perfectly timed New Year's episode. What do you think you are – in essence? A soul? The chemicals that make up your composition? What is it that comprises your "WHO?" It turns out, WHO we are is WHAT we do consistently. We're really just a compilation of our thought and behavior habits. Your habitual actions, behaviors, and decisions forge your CHARACTER. Thus, in order for anyone to change their RESULTS, the first thing they must do is alter their patterns of thought and behavior—their habits. The very best way to do that is to STOP!...

"The freedom of tomorrow lies in the discipline of today."

The "BIG" idea for this mind-bullet Monday revolves around the importance of implementing controls and constraints into our lives.

"Controls and constraints!?" You may be saying, "That sounds horrible, uncomfortable and pretty lame!"

Well, it turns out that controls and constraints tend to be precisely the types of parameters that can help you forge new behaviors (habits) to assist you in achieving your goals more quickly.

Even The Habit Factor's P.A.R.R. methodology demonstrates this with its frequency per week, minimum success criteria, and tracking period (4 weeks).

Perhaps more importantly (and paradoxically): It turns out that freedom is born from controls and constraints. Consider the person who never develops and institutes any controls and constraints in their life (diet, exercise and or/finances, etc.). This is a person who will likely struggle for a long time.

Conversely, the person who institutes controls and constraints (disciplines) related to the same subjects (diet, exercise and finances) will enjoy greater freedoms down the road.

Hence, the path to greater freedom in your future is to institute greater disciplines today.

"No man is free if he cannot command himself" ~ Pythagoras
