We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.
I heard someone famous once say that she was not a naturally outgoing person. She simply made the choice to pretend that she was – like she was acting a part in a play everyday. She wanted to be bold, so she dressed up in bold clothes and played the part. When her natural reaction to a new situation was to shrink back and observe, she would jump in with both feet.
And before she knew it, she discovered that she wasn’t acting anymore. Through repeatedly acting, she became. We are what we repeatedly do.
Do you want to be an organized person? You’ve read so many good and helpful things here – you know what to do! Take those little steps every day. Pretend you are that organized person you dream of being and do all the things an organized person does. Before you know it, you won’t be pretending anymore.
Have an amazing weekend!
