“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

There are habits we can see, and habits we cannot.

There’s the physical side of habits which are easier to identify. Do we wake up at the same time every day? Do we show up to the gym consistently to train? Do we hold true to the nutrition plan we set out?

What’s more challenging, is to look further inward. And seek out the invisible habits. To reflect on the way we think.

When we missed the lift, what were our immediate thoughts?
When we were cut off on the road by another car, how did we feel?
When the gossip arrived in the locker room, what were our first thoughts?

If our thoughts become actions, this must be where we start.

“Champions don’t blame the tools they’ve been given. Champions sharpen them.”

Abraham Lincoln once wrote that if he had six hours to cut down a tree, he would spend the first four sharpening the axe.

It doesn’t matter where you started, or even where you’ve been. All that matters is two questions:
Where do you want to go, and…
How hard are you willing to work to get there.

We have what we need. Everyone does. The separation comes down to who is willing to do the work.

Never whine.
Never complain.
Never make excuses.

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” – Scott Adams

How does an echo start?

With a tiny sound. One that might not even be noticeable. But shortly thereafter, that soft sound brings a soft echo. Still, maybe nothing to turn heads. Yet, the echo then builds… doubling, tripling, several times over. Before we know it, it’s impossible to ignore.

It’s called the “changing of the echos”, and it starts with a single tiny noise.

The misnomer is that a big life shift requires the “loudness” to turn heads at the start. Not true. What is important here isn’t the decibel, or the magnitude… but the intention.

Disciplined intention is everything. And we just need to start it.

“I was complaining I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.” – Confucius

A short story to share.
A man walked into a shop to order some flowers to be sent as a gift to his mother, living 200 miles away.

As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing. He asked her what was wrong and she replied, “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars.” The man smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.” He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flowers.

As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, “Yes, please! You can take me to my mother!” She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.

The man returned to the flower shop, cancelled the gifting order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.

At times, we can take many such relationships with our family and friends for granted.

“Live life on purpose” – Simon Sinek

As simple as this sounds, every action we take in our lives should have a clear and defined purpose.

As an analogy, let’s use money. When we spend money, there’s a reason. Food for tonight’s dinner, a new pair of shoes, gasoline. It’s very easy to justify. We would never throw our money into the wind. Yet… we can often find ourselves doing so with our time.

Unlike money, which can cycle back around on the next paycheck, we don’t get restocked on time. Be it a morbid thought, we know our days here are limited… time is our most precious, irreplaceable resource.

As we move through our day, take an objective look at the actions we take. Like a CFO analyzing a day of business, reflect tonight on where we spent our time. Because at “years-end-summary”, when our time comes… let’s be proud about how we chose to spend those resources. We only get one chance to do so.
