Every once in a while you’ll come across a story that is so inspiring you’ll feel like everyone is missing out unless you share it with them. That’s how I felt when I heard the story of Ernestine Shepherd, a 77 year old body builder. Ernestine spends a little bit of time talking about what a typical day is like for her. You’ll notice that her days look almost exactly the same – even down to the meals she eats. The one thing I’ve noticed about people who excel in their area of expertise is they are creatures of habit. They do the same things day in and day out. I’m not sure what this character trait has to do with becoming exceptional at your skill or a craft, but I’m willing to bet that routine is a foundation to success. Be looking for some research from me regarding that in the very near future.
