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

The only act we need to begin is to start; after that, we make repeats of the new behaviors until they become a habit. When habits are developed, then they become characteristics of our personality. It takes time for new behavior to develop into a habit. This is a constant struggle because we want to stop when we don’t see quick results. Patience is also a key to success or excellence because we have to allow ourselves the room for failure and to fall on our faces and then get back up to start all over again. After everything is said and done, then we can look back on our work and to appreciate the effort we put into the work in a meaningful way.
