“You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
This is one of the oldest and truest quotes. People who are excellent at their particular craft didn’t wake up one day with that high level skill set. They worked on it. Every day, through distractions, failures, and naysayers. They do this over long periods of time – sometimes decades, until one day they show up in our awareness as the world-class athlete, the accomplished artist or musician, the brilliant leader.
In what arena do you want to show up in our awareness as “excellent”? The answer to how to get there is clear: build the habits necessary to focus your energy and effort to what is necessary to achieve excellence.
