I have become much more careful about the excuses I accept from myself. In the past I wasn't even aware of how many excuses I made: I excused myself from going to the gym, calling someone, cleaning something, writing my entry. I was able to tell myself "I usually do this thing, but this time is different, I have a legitimate excuse..." and it took some time to realize that in some areas, I spent more time making excuses for not doing a thing than I actually spent doing that thing.

Is this how you build discipline? I hope so.
