“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
Today, we are discussing one of Dr. Daphne Scott’s favorite quotes. The key to this quote? To be fully honest with ourselves about that thing that we repeatedly do. It’s about virtue and living our virtues then, what happens when we don’t. We are, however, going to pick apart this quote, replace a few words with other words, look at what doesn’t and shouldn’t work for us, and then look at how we can actually achieve this.
If we are clear about what this quote truly means and what our intentions and motivations are, we are more likely to live fully into our aspirations, and it’ll be easier to renounce those things that we can allow to pull us off course.
