Discipline comes in a variety of forms. We all tend to be disciplined to keep to a routine or schedule primarily for work. Many of us are also disciplined to exercise everyday. The work part can become exhausting and often frustrating. For example, when I start a new estate plan or trust, I lay everything out before I begin I completely organize all the data so that once I start it goes smoothly. I am sure most people in whatever field they are in do the exact same thing. I find it more efficient. A long time ago I had two dogs, Dobermans who well disciplined. I taught them to behave and they acted appropriately except for one time. My late husband and I were hiking in the mountains with our neighbor. He also had a Doberman. The three of us and the dogs drove about an hour to a nice hiking spot. The dogs had a great time as did we. However, on the way down they came across a family having a picnic. They were eating sandwiches when all three dogs raced by and stole their food on the way. The people at first were nervous then they just burst out laughing. We apologized but they said they had a great story to tell at work on Monday. I have been working to discipline my daughter’s dog. One dog, Bonnie, does not need any training. Beau on the other hand is a handful. Using dog treats does help although his favorite thing in life is ripping up the trash. As parents we taught our children the basics such as manners, cleanliness, keeping their rooms clean, wearing clean clothes and not leaving the kitchen a mess when they wanted a snack. Some of these fabulous traits stuck, but others did not. Many children turn in messy adults both at work and at home. I tend to have a messy desk but everything else in my home is very clean and neat. How about you? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
