Discipline can be used for many things, Insomnia becomes less of a problem when you can tell your body to go to sleep.

Oh a list of things:

It'd help me quit smoking
It'd help with my diet
Focusing on what needs to be done
Not spending money I don't have......

I like the idea of being totally in control of myself at all times. I'd be prepared to work hard at acquiring Discipline for such a result! Imagine being able to control nervousness, blushing, perspiring; having access to parts of the brain that we normally can't consciously reach. With Discipline, you could stave off tiredness, depression, even illness. Of course, Yoga, Tai Chi, and other disciplines teach a lot of that. *Ties knot in handkerchief to remind self to look into possibilities...*

What would i find useful?

Oh my... and this should, really, really be under 10,000 words, shouldn't it? ;) Discipline would be a wonder in the face of the dreaded Health and Human Services people and the often less-than-humane manner with which they meter out their service.

Also, i think it would be most helpful in the doctor's office. Ever freeze up and can't remember the one niggling little thing on a list of several that you must talk with the doc about? I do! Once they begin to ask their questions, poke, prod and literally needle, i tend to get sidetracked. Pain and torture is most definately not a good method for information extraction in my book. So a definate use there.

And yes, *head-desk* ..life with a precocious 4 year old just absolutely needs Discipline! (not her, ME!) She's not called Tornado Girl for nuthin'. :aaah:
