This week, we will be talking together about how to pursue Excellence, and the power of building positive habits. Our in-class discussion lesson follows below:
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” — Aristotle (Teacher, Philosopher)
Habits are very hard to break, so if we are going to develop a habit, we want to make sure it is a good one. We can develop the habits of excellence. In karate, we work on developing some of the habits of excellence — doing our best, and treating each other with courtesy and respect. Developing the habits of excellence means working at them, and learning them. But when we develop the habits of excellence, they will open doors for us in many areas of our lives. Even though they can be hard work, the habits of excellence are worth developing.
1) What is a habit?
2) What is a good habit you have?
3) What is a good habit you would like to learn?
