Publisher's Summary

A true guide for procrastinators, slackers, couch potatoes, and those who get what they want right now, instead of what they want the most.

Want to get somewhere worth going? It's not going to be easy, and it's not going to be comfortable. So, now what? This book gives you the missing key to all that you want in life. 

Practical Self-Discipline is exactly what the title promises: Practical. You will gain scientifically-proven new perspectives and tips to manage your day, energy, motivation, and self-discipline. In doing so, you will also deeply learn about your brain and what it is that drives you on a biological basis. You'll learn how to deal with the tangled, contradictory mess that is the human psyche, and use it to your advantage for once! Unlock the secrets of how top performers consistently exercise self-discipline.
 

It can be frustrating to glide through life not competing things, or leaving things unfinished. It can be painful, even. But now, discover how to practically implement self-discipline into your life - mostly painlessly - and become a master finisher.
 

Overcome the barriers that actually lead to "laziness".
Peter Hollins has studied psychology and peak human performance for over a dozen years and is a bestselling author. He has worked with dozens of individuals to unlock their potential and path towards success. His writing draws on his academic, coaching, and research experience.
 

Adjust your psychology to master discomfort and master your impulses. 

  • Three simple formulas for getting things done and evaluating yourself. 
  • A timebox, an unschedule, and a calendar: What they can do for you. 
  • Construct the most helpful to-do list that will also motivate you and organize your life. 
  • Why you should actually read less, read Homer's Odysseus, and slice your life into categories.
     

Daily self-discipline will fundamentally change your life.
A goal without the self-discipline necessary to enact it will remain just a dream or fantasy. Does this describe you more often than not? It doesn’t matter what you want to do - you might want to become a CEO or just clean more consistently - self-discipline is one of the most important life skills because it is the skill of doing and executing.
