4 Tools of Discipline.
According to M. Scott Peck, the 4 tools of discipline are:
- Delaying gratification
- Accepting responsibility
- Dedication to reality
I agree. Instant gratification is never beneficial when looking at the big picture. It’s always better to think long term and experience the pain first to get it over with. But there has to be a balance; you also need to live in the present and be spontaneous.
