(From the article): "What I often find is that business people look for these bright, shiny object," he says. "Oh look at this, this is a great idea, let's try this, let's try that... no. You really want to be successful? You have to do things over and over and over again, consistently. "We are what we do, repeatedly. Therefore excellence is not a single act -- it's a habit."

Your Morning Routine Is Making You Dull | Surviving Leadership Chaos |
Brrriiinnng. The alarm clock buzzes in another hectic weekday morning. You leap out of bed, rush into the shower, into your clothes and out the door with barely a moment to think. A stressful commute gets your blood pressure climbing.

You Will Absolutely Love This 20-Minute, Life-Improving Daily Habit | Surviving Leadership Chaos |
You could spend hours reading advice on how to improve your diet or become more organized. But maybe you'd be better off using that time to take a nap in the afternoon.

donhornsby's insight:
