How to Develop Positive Habits that Last a Lifetime

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy (1926)

Our day to day lives are shaped by habits: either positive or negative. The results that we see today, are the outcome of the habits we had yesterday.

Study, work, extracurricular activities and personal relationships strongly influence our lives, behaviours and perceptions. For high school students, making the transition into young adults and taking responsibility for their own behaviours, is the first step to academic success.

Why, you ask? As a student, your job is to learn, and process new information. Being aware of the behaviours you have, gives you the opportunity to develop them into positive habits, and excel at whatever you want to achieve.
