tribute #176 - Discipline

too much reliability is liability.
too much of any virtue is sin.

rules, even self-imposed,
become arbitrary expectations.

regularly labelled "Undisciplined"
(well-intended, misdirected

"encouragment" spur). I incorporated
the judgement as "accurate"

into story of self.
routines are kinds of deadlines.

rules and routines can inhibit...
however some rituals can acutally

yes, otherwise one has to start from square one on every minutiae. letting some things be standard frees time for creativity elsewhere.

at the same time to call someone without habit or without discipline is false. one cannot avoid living with some amount of discipline. what one is disciplined about varies person to person.
