“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
Aristotle

I received this quote via email this week and thought it was a good reminder.   Sometimes we forget how much practice goes on behind closed doors when we see others excel . . . I keep reminding my oldest son that practice is the only way to get better at writing or learning to read, or even his favorite sport.  I also need to keep this in mind while I’m working on my “40 Before 40” post – perhaps some new habits are needed . . .

If you’re looking for something to read while on vacation this summer, a great book on this topic is Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers.
