Thought of the Day – Excellence

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.  We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.  We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle

Should we pass judgement based on a singular act, or the body of work? Why is it, with people, we tend to want to dismiss because of the singular but accept and hold onto based on the sum — being said that it’s easier to grab than it is to let go — one must ask themselves constantly the reason for each choice to ensure the decision never becomes a regret.
