    Love Rory’s quote and this post. Well-stated, as you usually are Melissa. We can be our own worst enemies by failing to apply systems and strategies. Our lives would be so much simpler, you are right, if we were consistently more disciplined!

      Hey Sarah,

      Yes Rory rocked it at the Nashville Speaker Training event I attended and inspired this post! I’m renewing my own lapsed disciplinary practices.
      Full speed ahead.

      Hugs, Melissa

    Good stuff Melissa. So true! We use that phrase in Mary Kay, so to read it here was a breath of fresh air. There are indeed many simple things in life but they sure aren’t easy and self-discipline and commitment are definitely needed to make those goals come to pass. Love it! Thanks 🙂

    Short term pain vs long term gain comes with clarity about what you want and why you want it. When the passion has been tapped into the discipline usually follows. If you are not willing to do the things necessary, like eliminate procrastination, success is further away than you would like. That’s one of the many reasons to work with someone of tour caliber. You help break through the fog and see the road ahead and come up with the strategy to get to the next mile marker. Can you tell I read about your travel troubles in your newsletter?

          Thanks Nora,

          Ahh yes, roads ahead are clear indeed!

          And this is why I don’t text but instead rely on my full laptop keyboard, LOL.

          Hugs, Melissa

    Interesting how difficult it is to keep it simple.

    Multi-tasking, jumping from one thing to the next constantly, leads to tiredness, confusion and the feeling that there is never enough time in the day.

    Whenever I’m mindful to just do one thing at a time life become simple and everything flows.

    (Like you, I stopped believing in the “quick and easy” a long time ago!)

    Thanks Melissa.

      Yes Kate,

      It can be surprisingly difficult to KISS! Being mindful is key and something I am constantly working on.

      Hugs, Melissa
