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

Our character is a collection of our habits, and habits have a powerful role in our lives. Habits consist of knowledge, skill, and desire. Knowledge allows us to know what to do, skill gives us the ability to know how to do it, and desire is the motivation to do it. –Paraphrased from Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
