We become what we do repeatedly. Excellence, therefore is not an act, it is a habit.”
The title of this blog is not my own quote. In fact, I have heard versions of it all week from different people, but it rings true. Success really doesn’t happen overnight. There is work and thought that goes into attaining your vision.
Interestingly while I was working on my plan for my next blog topic my friend sent me a great business building tool today and the timing could not have been better.
This week I have been focusing my efforts on taking my business to the next level. I have been working on my two year growth plan. How am I going to work on duplication and excellence? Frankly, these plans can be overwhelming, especially when you are “The boss of you!”
Right on the top of the page was this quote I would like to share.
“We become what we do repeatedly. Excellence, therefore is not an act, it is a habit.”
There it is. Simple. Practical. Realistic.
So my challenge to you in 2018 is to start using this mantra and think of how you can duplicate your habits in a way that will positively affect your business. Maybe this is setting goals for the number of “reach outs” you send a week for your business. Perhaps it is a long term project plan for a new service you will be offering. Or maybe it is just taking the good projects you completed in 2017 and finding a way to do those same projects at a higher volume.
Whatever it is…remember….you can succeed. You will succeed. But you will need to work for it. Good luck In 2018!
