7. Save $1000

An emergency fund simplifies everything. If you are paying off debt, only pay your minimum payments until you can save $1000. If you aren’t in debt, but still spend what you have, set aside money every day or every week until you reach $1000. Matt D'vella, a famous minimalist and productivity youtuber said this in one of his video about saving $1000 as an emergency fund. Money for emergencies reduces stress and creates maximum meaningful impact on your life.

6. Eat similar meals

When you think about how much time you spend thinking about what you are going to eat for lunch, make your family for dinner, or what you need to pick up at the grocery store, it’s clear that food is not always simple. Try eating the same breakfast and lunch all week and have 2 or 3 dinner choices that rotate throughout the week. This will reduce unnecessary long plannings and save time.

Self-discipline vs self-control

A common misconception is to think of self-discipline as self-control.

  • Self-discipline is about taking action regardless of how you feel. It is to act according to your thoughts, not your feelings. You don't need to feel motivated when you know what must be done.
  • Self-control is resisting the desire of what you want to do. "I won't order dessert because I'm on a diet."

If we want to increase our success and happiness in life and work, we need self-discipline.
