Self-discipline vs self-control

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.

Self Improvement


  • Set big hairy audacious goals. Write down ONE goal you'd like to achieve and why you're committed to achieving it.
  • Build tiny habits. These are behaviours that are easy to do to move you towards your goal—drinking one glass of water—doing one push-up.
  • Celebrate small wins. Small wins come from committing to your Tiny Habits, then stretching yourself consistently. At the end of each day, write down three wins.
  • Choose a power word. For example, repeat to yourself "discipline," or "healthy," or "focus."
  • Identify potential roadblocks and possible solutions. "If X happens, then I'll do Y".
