A good friend of mine (Pauletta Kaufman) is working on a new business idea and asked if I could be on her daily emails called Pauletta’s Daily Message. This month’s topic has been about “Discipline”. Every day I get an email that pertains to Discipline and it got me thinking.

How am I disciplined?

I think the most notably disciplined thing I do is being Organized. I’m a freak about being Organized which helps me accomplish more than the norm. Just yesterday, Chris McCormack was over (Yes, Ironman World Champion) and he was asking how I get so much done and so I showed him. I went into my office and showed him my filling system for all my businesses. All my files are designed like a P&L statement and at the end of each year all I have to do is pull all my statements out of each folder and box them up for storage so I can start a new year. I think if you want to have a very productive and efficient life get Organized and you’ll be ahead of everyone else.

Disciplined = Organized = Productive…what are you waiting for?

Paul’s Tip of the day: If you have a business and you’re NOT using a bookkeeper, stop what you’re doing and go get one NOW. You’ll thank me later.
