Excellence Is A Habit

Definitely Time to Start a New Habit

This GREAT video explains what I have been doing to avoid success all these years! I was going to say “wrong” all these years, but I HAVE learned from my many mistakes.

Perfectionism and reaching for ALL the shiny objects and ideas that are “going to work” instead of focusing diligently on on those in front of me over and over and over and OVER again. The habit I am working on today is finishing what I have started…


Willpower is a finite resource and cannot be relied on.

Ivan Misner, founder of the longstanding Business Network International, says doing six things things a thousand times will make you much more effective and successful in business than doing a thousand things six times.

What I often find is that business people look for the bright, shiny object, he says. Oh look at this, this is a great idea, let’s try this, let’s try that… no. You really want to be successful? You have to do things over and over and over again, consistently.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act -- but a habit.


What habits have you created that are working for you?
