Discipline equals freedom

Abstract from “Discipline equals Freedom: A Field Manual” – by Jocko Willink

THE WAY OF DISCIPLINE 

People look for the shortcut. The hack. 

And if you came here looking for that: You won’t find it. 

The shortcut is a lie. The hack doesn’t get you there. 

And if you want to take the easy road, it won’t take you to where you want to be: Stronger. Smarter. Faster. Healthier. Better. 

FREE. 

To reach goals and overcome obstacles and become the best version of you possible

will not happen by itself. It will not happen cutting corners, taking shortcuts, or looking for the easy way. 

THERE IS NO EASY WAY. 

There is only hard work, late nights, early mornings, practice, rehearsal, repetition, study, sweat, blood, toil, frustration, and discipline. 

DISCIPLINE. THERE MUST BE DISCIPLINE. 

Discipline: The root of all good qualities. 

The driver of daily execution. The core principle that overcomes laziness and lethargy and excuses. Discipline defeats the infinite excuses that say: Not today, not now, I need a rest, I will do it tomorrow. 

What’s the hack? How do you become stronger, smarter, faster, healthier? How do you become better? How do you achieve true freedom?

There is only one way.
