It takes a bit of discipline and a good deal of unprofessionalism to not work on fashionable topics and trendy methods.
The only reason to discipline oneself is the enjoyment of self-mastery.
This alone doesn’t make these disciplines “false,” but it does put the question of their “validity” into a different light.
I like to think; others like to drink. You wouldn’t say that an alcoholic is disciplined for raising a glass, would you?
I couldn’t help asking myself, “What went wrong in his ‘normal’ life?” I bet others ask themselves the same questions when I speak about my intellectual discipline.
Normalization could not have always been the norm.
Upon her own account, though, she was indulging in an addiction.
The weight of these tomes in my hands is a reminder of discipline, the imposition of which I have learned to enjoy.
When procrastination strikes, productivity strikes back.
It is easier to imagine that you lack the discipline to write than to accept that you have nothing to say.
