Three thoughts from others. Two thoughts from me.
“The world we live in is designed to squeeze people into boxes — very comfortable boxes, but boxes nonetheless. Pressures at work are designed to get short term results to make things happen. Consequently, there’s little time for exploration as expansive as “how this contributes to a fulfilling life.”
“A fulfilling life is not something you attain by accomplishment or acquisition. It is a continuous process of creation. As long as we continue to look for things to define our fulfillment, we are likely to be temporarily filled and constantly hungry.”

“The more immediate pleasure you get from an action, the more strongly you should question whether it aligns with your long term goals.” – James Clear, Atomic Habits
Thoughts from me
Discipline is the practise of choosing between what you want now versus what you want most.
Discipline is the commitment to long term fulfillment over instant gratification. This commitment is made in each moment and is renewed every day.
