Excellence

Quote

Excellence is not a gift, but a skill that takes practice. We do not act ‘rightly’ because we are ‘excellent’, in fact we achieve ‘excellence’ by acting ‘rightly.’

Plato

How to avoid regrets

Do the right thing. You know what the right thing is. Do the right thing, and you’ll never have any regrets.

Redoran Guard, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Inside yourself you know what the right thing to do is.

You don’t even have to think about it, you know it.

It can be chosing hard work over labour, it can be chosing having a hard talk over running away or whatever it is for you personally.

But you know what is right, so go and do it!

The weight of discipline is by far less than the weight of regret!
