Effective teams have both. But which is better?
- Discipline is hard to nurture. Living from it comes the ability to ensure your meaningful work thrives, eventually.
- Feelings require no nurturing. But living from them means getting up late, putting off important tasks, and breaking your own rules.
- Discipline can’t tell you where to go. It doesn’t know what matters most to you holistically, only what does in the moment. It keeps you on course, but cannot plot a path.
- Feelings can help you see where to go. They know what matters most to you. They can keep you on course, so long as they’re treated as a signal to observe, not a noise to follow.
One is a compass and one is a map. Know which is which.
