“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” - Aristotle
I love this quote. Why? Because I’m probably the most predictable person you will ever meet. I eat the same food for breakfast every day, I shop at the same places, I go to the same job, that I love, every day. I live the word ‘habit’.
I like this quote because it makes me stop and think about what my habits say about me, and, more importantly, where they will lead me. Am I walking in excellence every day? And, if not, what habits do I need to change?
So, my question for you on this Monday morning is this: what do you repeatedly do, and is it creating excellence?
If, after you think on that for a minute, you find that you’re not entirely satisfied with your answer, take heart! All you have to do is change your habits, one action at a time.
