Some good advice from the Big Aristotle
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
That's really good advice for an orienteer. Find lots and lots of controls. Run a lot. Run in the forest. You'll develop the habits that you need to reach your best.
The quote is from Aristotle. I came across it when I was reading up on Shaq. Shaq reportedly gave himself the nickname - The Big Aristotle - because he like the quote.
I was reminded of the ideas about deliberate practice that I've written about before.
