Self-discipline

Have you been listening to John MacArthur?  The message from yesterday was only 15 minutes long and it was packed with great stuff!  I took a whole page of notes.  Here’s some highlights:

Self-discipline…

1.  Start with small things

2.  Clean your environment – get rid of excess

3.  Make a schedule – detailed or general

4.  Wean yourself off of being entertained all the time – try reading, walking, planting flowers, etc.

5.  Be on time

6.  Keep your word, even in the littlest things!!  – Don’t make promises you can’t keep

7.  Do hardest tasks first

8.  Finish what you start

9.  Practice self denial

10.  Volunteer for tasks – Your life needs to be ordered to leave space for doing things for others and        not just yourself.
