excellence, aristotle

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

Excellence is the standard in sports and winning is the ultimate goal. But winning doesn’t happen overnight, it comes through creating great habits and sticking to them.

Here are some highlights of the episode:

  • Greg Popovich just passed 1,000 wins as an NBA coach. How did he do it?
  • The daily grind is what kills excellence
  • The question you have to ask yourself is, “Am I willing to do the work to accomplish my goals?”
  • Instead of setting goals, set habits of greatness. It’s something you can accomplish daily.

What does excellence mean to you? How do you reach and maintain that standard?
