Discipline yourself to do the things you need to do when you need to do them, and the day will come when you will be able to do the things you want to do when you want to do them!" Zig Ziglar
A good corollary to this statement was made by Mike Vance, Dean of Disney University. He said your goal should be to "...do what you do so well that other people will want to show other people how well you do it."
Taken together, these two concepts can ultimately lead to nothing but success! Zig Ziglar's statement is the phenomenon of moving from unconscious incompetence to unconscious competence. You begin unconsciously incompetent. You don't know what you are doing but you don't know enough about it to realize you don't know it. Then you learn enough to realize you are incompetent and have reached conscious incompetence. After you apply yourself, you learn the discipline and realize how well you are doing it and you are consciously competent. The final step is to do what you do so well that you do it without considering your acts. You have now achieved unconscious competence.
