Motivation Monday

16 Jan


I studied Philosophy in college and this Aristotle quote depicts one of my favorite concepts. It’s the idea that to get where you want to be   (i.e., excellence in any sense whether that’s your health, relationships, career, organizational skills, you name it) it’s about doing small things everyday that lead you there. It’s about creating a practice or trend of choosing and doing things that lead us to excellence and make us excellent in the doing of them. I think this is great because it alleviates the pressure of having to have all the answers or be at your goal weight or in your dream job right this instant….instead feel accomplishment for the things you did today that are leading you to your goal.

I think we can all agree that Aristotle is a pretty well regarded thinker 😉 and he believed we are all capable of excellence if we just focus on making a habit of doing small things everyday that lead us to our big dreams. If you make this concept a practice I promise you’ll be at those big dreams before you know it!

Happy Motivation Monday!
