Foster Good Habits

“We are what we repeatedly do.

Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.”

Aristotle

 

In his internationally best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen R. Covey defines a habit as:

“. . . the intersection of knowledge, skill and desire.

Knowledge is the theoretical paradigm, the what to do and the why. Skill is the how to do. And desire is the motivation, the want to do. In order to make something a habit in our lives, we have to have all three.”

SELF-SCRUTINY

Are there any habits in your life, which undermine your potential for success?
