OM.2 - Day 7: Procrastination

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

What are you repeatedly doing or not doing? Is this building habits that seem to be part of your everyday fabric?

I wanted to start off with this Aristotle quote because it shows that when we repeatedly do excellently, it forms a habit of excellence. When we are always doing our best, the best becomes a habit. Whatever we do, breathe, say, and think all sends a message to the Universe. When you are constantly sending the same message it begins to manifest in your life. By doing excellently, you will attract only excellence.

Today I would like to encourage all OM-ers to confront something that you have been procrastinating about. Perhaps it is washing clothes or dishes, or maybe it is cleaning your room. Maybe it is donating clothes to a local church or painting your bedroom walls. Confront this procrastinated thing with an approach of excellence. For example if you have wanted to remodel your kitchen for a long time, you might not be able to do that all today, but what you can do is call a contractor and get some quotes today or go to Home Depot and pick out some of the items that you want in your new kitchen. Approach all the things that you are procrastinating about with the detail of excellence and accept excellence as your habit.

Here is another quote to leave you with:
“Excellence is in the details. Give attention to the details and excellence will come.” - Perry Paxton

Today confront your procrastination and do it with excellence!
