As we review the COVID pandemic, we ask ourselves what have we gained and lost from this experience?. Gained time at home with family and lots of innovation and creative new ways to do things. BUT our biggest loss is DISCIPLINE!

Self discipline in particular- how many beards do you see now, because we have stayed at home and stopped shaving daily? How many people have lost the art of communicating in person? How many customers have we failed to visit and gain referrals or extra sales from?

Steve Brown, the Founder of the Fortune Group ( an affiliate of Smart Train) once said” Disciplines are not Disciplines to Disciplined People– they are Habits! How many habits have been lost because we haven’t been in an environment of discipline i.e the office?

Time to re-energise our good habits, review the disciplines we’ve let slip and prepare ourselves for the challenging times ahead.
