Writing Practice: We Are What We Repeatedly Do

Directions:  Consider carefully the following statement(s) and the assignment below it.

            “We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence then is not an act, but a habit [or a set of habits].”

Assignment:  What do you think of the view that excellence or success results from our good habits day in and day out?  For example, can you get in shape (or become fit) by exercising just once?  Can you obtain a university degree by studying only for one day?   In an essay, support your position by discussing an example (or examples) from literature, science, and technology, the arts, current events, or your own experience or observations.
