I guess the questions I would ask would be, first, would you be the person you are today if you hadn't had so much direction and discipline when you were younger? It's one thing to start days with nothing clearly in mind if you have a history of hard work, another if you have no foundation. I think you are so interesting because you give such shape to your time, however you go about that. One should build a life, not just take it.

I think discipline is great, as long as one is happy with it. Isn't that the meaning of self direction? That the discipline is voluntary, and then can be a happy experience? If is imposed, then certainly one will rebel.
