‘PRACTICE’
The 11th element of Elements of life:
12 bridges back to you.

People ask me a lot of “howdya?” questions: “howdya” learn to surf, to dance, to be a decent mom, to stay fit, to balance a career and family life?  And I must admit, there’s so much I don’t know, that what I do know seems to pale in comparison.  But when I look back I realize, yes,  I have accomplished some things. And so the answer to that “howdya?”  question is quite simply, PRACTICE. When we want to become proficient at something, we practice.

Aristotle wrote:

 “‘WE ARE WHAT WE REPEATEDLY DO’

And goes on to say…

 ‘Excellence therefore is not an act,  but a practice.’

Easy enough.  That’s a fine solution for becoming better or more proficient at something we consciously choose: PRACTICE.  But in between those things we choose, there’s a lot going on.

Like Aristotle said,

‘Excellence is not an act, it’s a practice.’

but to that I add:

mediocrity is not an act, but a practice. Well being, poor health, peace, self esteem, artistry, fear, financial success and joy, none of these are an act. They are a practice.

Practice does not discriminate. Practice is practice. Whatever you are habitually doing, you are becoming.

The question is, ‘Who do you want to be and what are the practices that will get you there?

Let’s break it down.

Enjoy this month’s element: PRACTICE.
