We’d all love to get more hours into a day so we can spend more time doing the things we love, whether it’s spending time with family, hanging out with friends, working around the house, making money on more contracts, reading or just relaxing with Netflix. Unfortunately, the Earth has no intentions of changing the speed of its rotation, so we’re going to have to make do with these 24-hour days. That means squeezing as much time into a day as possible to optimize productivity, and for many of us, that means improving our self-discipline.
As noted, being more disciplined can help you get more activities into your complete day, and at a micro-level, it will also help you get more done at work. That results in happier clients, more references, more contracts and, yes, higher rates!
