Discipline is THE Glue

A strong discipline is the glue that holds together the Monopoly Method. A strong discipline is also the engine that will drive you to the right themes and monopolies—and it is the engine that helps you decide what scores to enter for our Process. Without an effective discipline, there is no Monopoly Method and no way to both replicate and measure your performance, which in the end is needed to help you learn and grow as an investor.
