      I think this article is about discipline. My parents were strict and I was raised within its structure - household chores, studying and good grades in school, working a job each summer etc. Of course initially I resented it but as I grew into an adult, I realized how it helped me to be organized and to prioritize. Discipline actually gave me more time, flexibility and freedom. It’s so valuable and I’m glad I learned it early, as a child, otherwise this article would seem overwhelming and impossible!

      Going to sleep at 8pm? Seriously? I go to sleep between 10pm and 10.30pm and I wake up at 6am. Nobody is going to wake up at 5am, seriously. Otherwise I subscribe to almost everything, excluding the God stuff.

        Why are you excluding something that “doesn’t exist”?
