Discipline to Success:

The Education Attribute

Educated men are as much superior to uneducated men as the living are to the dead.
Aristotle

continuation from BLOG post: part IX.d

For the past two weeks, we have asked our readers to develop their education attribute.  We are now going to evaluate how well you performed.

The education attribute requires more energy to develop — both internal and external — and impacts motivation at lesser levels than either of the two physical attributes. So your performance may be a bit harder than your physical attribute.

Education has less motivating impact than the physical attributes. Measuring an educational change is more difficult because educational changes are mostly intangible — and it takes longer to notice an educational change than a physical change.

Evaluate your progress for all three character developments during the last 14 days.

1) Physical and Physical Temperance Evaluation:


Did you achieve your physical development goal
for the last 11 or more days?

Did you achieve your physical temperance goal
for the last 11 or more days?

Do you feel confident that you can continue strengthening
the physical and physical temperance goals
for the next fourteen days?

If you answer “no” to any of the above questions, evaluate why you are not accomplishing these physical attribute goals. You may need to return to the last two topics where appropriate and develop these attribute goals before moving forward. You are not building discipline if you fail to achieve these development goals each day.

If you answered “yes” to all three questions, continue building your physical attribute goals — perhaps with more intensity — for another 14 days.

Let me illustrate the character development cycle. Briefly, we set a attribute goal(1.1) and develop that goal each day for ten consecutive weeks. On the 11th week, the attribute goal(1.1) becomes part of our character — meaning that attribute goal(1.1) is more automatic and part of your daily routine. We now set a new attribute goal(1.2) and develop that goal for 10 consecutive weeks. The cycle repeats itself every 10 weeks.

2) Education Development Evaluation:

Did you achieve your education development goal
for 11 or more days?

Do you feel you are strengthening your education attribute?

Do you feel confident that you can continue achieving your
educational goal for the next fourteen days?

If you answered “no” to any of the three questions, return to Step (1) in this topic and repeat the steps indicated. You should develop the education attribute before moving to the social attribute.

You might find that developing and strengthening all three character attributes simultaneously is too difficult. If adding the educational attribute is too demanding, wait a few more weeks. Work diligently on your physical and physical temperance goals until you feel capable to take on another character attribute.

If you answered “yes” to all three questions, and if you feel comfortable that you are enhancing your education, you can move forward and develop the social attribute in the next posting.
