Please Do Not Sit On The Fence

Recently, I saw a sign while I was at an amusement park with my kids that made me think. It said simply, “please do not sit on the fence.” I thought, isn’t this the biggest problem we have in our business and personal lives?

What does the word “discipline” mean? It means freedom! It’s not putting yourself in a box; it’s putting yourself on top of the box, giving yourself a structure that can support you. The box is not a trap, a confinement, or a prison cell. It’s a platform, a solid step that affords you a higher vantage point from which to view your possibilities.
