# Saying No to Distractions

Self-discipline isn’t something you’re born with. It’s a skill you can develop and master over time, and it has several basic components.

 # Ownership

To make self-discipline a lifestyle, you have to hold yourself accountable for your decisions and actions. One of my biggest roles models, former Navy Seal and author Jocko Willink, points out three concepts that are closely connected:

 Discipline = Freedom = Ownership

How does this work? Being disciplined will free you from limitations you have imposed on yourself.Freedom will allow you to grow as a human being and learn new things about yourself (and what you’re capable of) every single day.  

Ownership means you take personal accountability for your life: you decide what you need to do, you take action towards your goals, and you don’t blame others for what hasn’t worked in your past.

 # Clear Focus.

 Leading a self-disciplined life starts as soon as you start the day — in the morning. That’s the time when you set the tone to the next 12–16 hours of your life. You can choose to be reactive, which can mean you wake up, get your phone, and start checking emails, Twitter, or Instagram. Or, you can learn to train your brain to be focused as soon as you wake up.

# Prioritized Deep Work.

Timing — just like in most other aspects of your life — is everything. Being self-disciplined means you do your hard work first before you do anything for pleasure. It means you are aware of which times of day should be devoted to doing hard work, and which times can be allotted to entertainment and socializing.

 # Delayed Gratification

If doing hard work early helps you focus better, the natural side effect of self-discipline is postponing things that are more pleasurable. What’s the purpose of doing something difficult first in order to reward yourself later? In a study performed by Stanford University scientists called the Marshmallow experiment, results showed that delayed gratification can increase your chance at succeeding in many areas of your life — your education, career, short and long term goals, and your personal life choices.

 # Saying no to Distractions

 Leading a self-disciplined life means learning to say no to many different things: giving in to temptations to indulge in pleasant activities, curbing your desire to procrastinate on daily priorities, and not letting distractions take over your day. When you turn off what distracts you, you have a better chance to actually get stuff done.
