A paragraph on discipline [80 words]

Whenever we across the word ‘discipline’, we are surrounded by scepticism that it is something that binds our life in chains. However, the reality is just opposite. Discipline helps us in improving life and making it worth in every way. Discipline is a set of ethical conducts and behaviours which when incorporated regularly in our daily life, increases our hope for all-round development. Discipline actually consists of elements like proper use of time, good conduct towards people, inclusion of good habits in daily life, striving for good health etc.

Question 2.


A paragraph on discipline [150 words]

We all know about the extreme importance of discipline in life. But what discipline, in fact, is? Rearing good habits in daily life and following good traits of health, wealth and character together constitute discipline. Is there a defined time to incorporate discipline in life? Though childhood is the best time to start following a disciplined life, still many of us do not get the proper advice to do so at an early stage in life. However, one should start incorporating discipline in life as soon as one becomes aware of it. When we apply discipline in all walks of life, our dreams start getting fulfilled. For example, if some one begins to get up early every morning, she or he gets an extra chunk of time to do something which hitherto was not being done. Similarly, life unfolds many other merits when discipline plays its role.

Asking Questions to Write a Paragraph or an Essay

Here is the afore mentioned method that consists in asking questions.

When you are given a topic and asked to write a short paragraph or an essay on the same, start by asking questions to yourself. There will be no dearth of material and you will find that you have lot of it to put on paper.

For example, to develop a short essay on discipline,

You may ask, to begin with,

  1. What is discipline?
  2. What is the meaning of discipline?
  3. What is discipline constituted of?
  4. What will happen if no one follows discipline?

Next, brainstorm and ask more questions:

  1. How can we follow discipline in daily life?
  2. How do I believe that discipline is beneficial to me?
  3. How can we discover those aspects of life where we are not disciplined?
  4. How can I make my friends follow discipline at school?

Similarly create more questions starting with when, where, which, whom etc.

  1. When is the right time parents should start integrating discipline in their children’s life?
  2. When is the right time to study, take lunch and dinner, go to bed and awake in the morning?
  3. Where can we start learning to discipline ourselves?
  4. Where can I find the ideal traits of discipline?
  5. Whom should I look forward to for teaching discipline to me?
  6. Which factors in life gain most with discipline?
  7. Which aspects of discipline are most important?

Once you have lots of questions, your job becomes easy. Pick up questions in accordance with the format of the question paper and answer the questions as efficiently as you can.

As an application of the above method, I shall solve a question below by picking up questions from above and answering them:
