A coworker sent a New Year’s quote to me:
Quality is not an act, it is a habit. – Aristotle
And I thought to myself, “what a positive reminder to begin 2021!” :o)
We all have habits (some good, some bad) so we know what it takes to form a habit.
But what does it take to maintain a habit? It’s a continual work in progress; we don’t “get there” and “never have to work at it again”. Consistency is key.
The habit of quality is not exempt from consistency. It is a mindset. It is a daily practice.
As a new year dawns, it is the perfect time to re-remind myself to live my life with quality at the forefront:
Quality in my attitude
Quality in my health
Quality in my sleep
Quality in my exercise
Quality in my food choices
Quality in my relationships
Quality in my work
Quality comes from within, it is not an act and it cannot be faked. But it does not come without the proper mindset.
How do I choose to live my life? I choose to live my life with quality!
