To Live as an Anomaly- A Person Who Loves Discipline
By: Jamie Huddleston -Academic Advisor
I would like to blame my disciplined lifestyle on my mother. In third grade she gave me a present of an alarm clock. Early to bed, early to rise, makes an 8-year-old healthy, wealthy, and wise? Maybe not, but such a gift ignited in my young soul a need for discipline. Since the inception of my life centered on efficiency and order, I have discovered the blessing and the blight of such a custom. My strength of discipline establishes routines, structure, and diligence that has supported and continues to support my academic, professional, and personal growth.
Routine is the child of habit and persistence. During adolescence and college, I established bedtime routines, workout routines, and social routines. Although my peers scoffed at my 9pm bedtimes, my routine built foundations for a healthy lifestyle. I welcomed eight hours of sleep every night and woke to a consistent 5am gym appearance. Consequently, I evaded sickness, sustained life in the midst of a demanding schedule, and performed well in my academics. I may have missed a late night movie or a trip to Dairy Queen with friends, but I conquered the formidable foes of freshmen year with an established routine.
Structure: I believe I instituted the most effective structures within my academics. At the start of every semester, I collected my syllabi, grabbed my color-coordinated pens and planner, and strategized my semester. I wrote down every due date, study block, and work shift. I scribed throughout my calendar times to survey each assignment and study for each test. Three weeks prior to a paper deadline, I would collect my research; two weeks prior, I would manufacture a detailed outline; one week prior, I would write the paper and spend the remainder of the week editing and revising my paper. Procrastination is a foul friend, and it was no friend of mine.
Diligence provokes a perpetual flame within me to work on a project until I complete it. In correlation with my top strength - achiever - I seek opportunities to take on large projects, break down the tasks, and industriously devour the endeavor. When I began my student teaching experience my senior year of college, I had to balance the workloads of planning lessons for multiple classes, coaching and score keeping for various sports, and applying to graduate schools and jobs. The layers of responsibilities and tasks required great rigor; however, with diligence and hard work, I overcame the most arduous semester of my college experience.
Being of a disciplined nature, I am equipped with the capacity to prevail over incredible feats. However, I believe the most important lesson I’ve learned in carrying this strength is the need to walk in the juxtaposed nature of grace. No matter how much discipline I impose on my life, I know that I have and will continue to experience failure, and with failure comes necessary grace.
