Building Good Habits Will Move You Beyond Willpower
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” - Aristotle This post is an exploration of positive and negative accumulation — that is, the effect of doing something (however small or seemingly irrelevant) regularly to the point that its effects compound over time. For me, this often revolves around learning a skill, but I think it’s equally relevant for lifestyle choices such as eating, exercise and even moral choices.
Right now, creativity can seem frivolous. That’s when we need it most.
There’s a lot going on in the world, and with the threat of recession and war (to name but two challenges of modern living), it can be hard to see how the pursuit of creative practice is time well spent.
