Your superpower


Everyone has a superpower if they have the discipline to train it.

It’s not there for free, it takes work and attention and making difficult and at times unpopular choices, even with yourself.

To use it, you have to put aside distractions and focus on what needs to be done. You have to work out the steps and follow through, even when it’s inconvenient, even when you’d rather not, even when there are seventeen other things pulling on your time.

With great power comes great responsibility – well, if you want to wield your power, you have to take responsibility. Responsibility for your time and your effort, responsibility to the promises you make to others, responsibility for doing what you say your going to do, responsibility for outcomes not just for actions, but responsibility for actions too.

Your superpower is discipline.

Skippy strategy: Have the discipline to follow through.
