Excellence . . . is not an act but a habit. (Kary Oberbrunner, motivational author and speaker)

Oberbrunner explains it this way: “We are what we repeatedly do.” As someone else has said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” That means we should never settle for the mediocre but continually strive for excellence. The more we do that, the more likely our work will be seen as consistently excellent.

Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (Philippians 4:8)
