Go the Distance Each Time

Netzach of Gevurah

Hi everyone, Jordan Drayer, the savvy millennial voice actress whose discipline is enduring. Today is one week and four days of the Omer. And there's always time to like and share; we've still got a long way to go!

Now we're looking at the endurance of discipline. If you made a change two days ago with Gevurah of Gevurah, how's it going? Have you stuck to it for at least two days? If you made a list, did you get the three things done?

When people say, "She's really disciplined," usually they're talking about someone who is consistently disciplined, always able to stick to her work duties or diet or exercise or learning a language. This is what today's quality is all about, enduring or consistent discipline.

Today's lack of attention span is annoying and atrocious. A friend was once asking her Facebook feed at large, how do I get kids to stick with something longer? She wanted to engender in them the idea that it takes a long time to get good at a skill like any sport or music. But as she was reminded, she was already doing it; she's a band director, and music learning is one of the best ways to help this.

If being consistently disciplined is still very hard for you or like it's an ADHD thing, I'd say put it in the planner, either written or on the smart phone, set reminders, and then do it for a small amount of time to start. You want to exercise? Do a ten minute walk. Add one minute each day, or do 10 minutes for seven days, then 11 minutes the next week, and so on.

If you want to cut out dessert, then it could even be just one day a week, if you always have dessert. But the key is always consistency. Kids and adults benefit from schedules. "Every morning, I wake up at 7am and do X for 20 minutes." It goes without saying, but discipline of kids and animals also needs to be consistent. Otherwise you end up with mixed messages and kids not respecting your authority.

So today, commit to the plans made on day two of this week, write it in your planner or phone, and you can even get an accountability partner. I'm planning to stop buying cookies altogether and eating more fruit as dessert. I made it work with ice cream, so next step is cookies. Of course, I'll always accept your likes and shares. See you next time!
