“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not a single act, but a habit.”
“Ill habits gather by unseen degrees. As brooks make rivers, rivers run to seas.”
Today’s Mind-Bullet Monday has us pondering the idea: We pay rent not once a month, but in actuality every day.
We like to think we pay our rent or mortgage once a month but the truth is we pay it every single day, simply divided by the days in a month.
In the same way, excellence doesn’t come to us all at once. The price of excellence is paid every day, and the currency is habit.
Somewhere along the line we started looking for shortcuts. Going to the gym only when we feel like it. Waking up when we feel like it. Putting in the work sometimes. But ultimately these shortcuts backfire.
Build the discipline — build the habit. This is where excellence lies: Excellence lies in paying the rent every day.
How can we shift our mindset to be willing to pay our rent every day? MG reminds us of a little something he likes to call P.A.R.R.: Plan, Act, Record and Reassess.
