“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is a habit.”
Over 95% of New Years Resolutions never come to pass. Inertia keeps things much the same. When change does come, it is often from outside us … and it is often unwelcome.
Here’s a simple three-step process to bring the discipline of personal excellence into your life:
1. List two or three things you really, really desire.
2. Identify the vital behaviors that are essential to achieving these desires.
3. Engage in these behaviors every day for a minimum of three weeks. Design as many social and structure supports as you can, in order to help you stay the course.
