Three Questions to Assess a Person’s Self-Discipline Skill

Success requires determination, persistence, discipline, dedication and practice in the present and a continuum.

The era of top-down, hierarchical management and command and control style of leadership is beginning to change. We live in the hyperconnected, always-on hybrid world with well mixed physical business building and remote working environment, the job is no longer just the place you go in fixed hours on weekdays, but the task you accomplish at always on and always connected surroundings. The team needs to be self-organizing in being disciplined enough to do the work. There are more opportunities and temptations due to today’s digital convenience, only the wise minds can make the right choices. And, self-motivation, self-discipline and time management skill become more important qualities to define the “right people” in digital organizations. Which questions shall you ask to assess a person’s self-discipline skill?

Do you have self-consciousness or self-awareness about the goals you set or situations you encounter?  Self-discipline is about disciplined thoughts. Thoughts are single pointed and focused to whatever you do. We experience all kinds of situations good and bad in our lives that require moral courage to deal with. Self-discipline is what supports that moral courage and allows us to act in a right manner. Self-disciplined people have better clarity of thoughts and, therefore, do not get carried away by the herd mentality. They may exercise restraint while expressing emotions or may avoid indulgence because of better control over self / clarity of thoughts and not because of any weakness. Hence, people with self-discipline are more focused and determined.

Do you have the sustainable motivation to further enforce self-discipline? Motivation can come and go just as easy - if it is not the heart desire, a true passion, an authentic expression. Awareness is at the level of the energetic connection between Heart and Mind. You sense yourself and that's all you need to let your thoughts and behavior work to keep you motivated. Without discipline, you do not manage to transform negative habits and you do not create a new state of awareness where the self is nourished through the experience of positivity. Letting people explore where their energy is and then align the energy to work at hand. A sustained motivation will further enforce self-discipline. Success requires determination, persistence, discipline, dedication and practice in the present and a continuum.

Do you have the prioritization and superior Time Management skill with strong disciplines to get things done? The human being needs to be enthused to participate fully. Get excited about a goal to achieve is a form of love that allows you to pursue it with greater emotional determination. In general, objectives achieved without enthusiasm are mediocre. The second is the ability to impose themselves a method to set priorities balanced and impose the discipline needed to run them. The third is Time Management skill which is all about choosing to help oneself by being able to put in efforts only after you have prepared self to take and bear risks of meeting and facing challenges of fears and the beliefs which blind others. When all these skills properly applied, the method allows increasing the ability to achieve personal and professional goals.

The high performing and high potential digital professionals are self-motivated, self-directed, self-disciplined. Self-discipline is nothing but self-consciousness. Self-disciplined people are more influential because more often they can harmonize their mind, their heart, and their action, to put simply, walk the talk. People are still drawn toward highly disciplined people because they like the stability of knowing that a person they are following is consistent and reliable.
