The Necessity of Structure

Rules and boundaries are not very popular but necessary for success. It’s discipline when applied and embraced. It helps keep things in order and progressing along a desired path. Structure can also provide a sense of security and control.

Aristotle said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." Striving for excellence requires structure that encourages repeated behaviors. These behaviors allow for the continual development of one's knowledge, skills, and abilities.

How do we achieve excellence? One step at a time.
