Self- talk : Every day you need to win the battle within yourselves to be discipled. Give yourself a pep talk and remind yourself about your goal. If you are self disciplined. You will be surprised by the kind of extra time you will have in your hands. You will actually feel you have 25th hour in your day.
You will have more time for yourself and your family.
