quote of the week

"we are what we repeatedly do. excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." -aristotle

i stumbled across this quote and immediately loved it. excellence. something i strive for in all i do for several reasons. one, the Bible commands me to pursue excellence in all things. two, i'm a full-blown firstborn people pleaser. three, i hate failure and in my mind, half-hearted effort is failure.

i love this little nugget. it highlights the idea that excellence is closely linked with discipline. which is something i could use a little more of in my life if i'm being honest. that being said, i'm kicking off this week with a new focus and a good dose of determination. wish me luck. it's going to be a doozie of a week.
