Nature’s Excellence

We are what we repeatedly do, excellence is not an act, but a habit (Aristotle)

Walking around Glen Feshie today, it was easy to see the excellence of the great old trees around the Uath Lochan. Every year, they withstand whatever winter throws at them, before they bloom in the spring.

There is so much we can learn from these trees. They always show up, they deal with the elements, they have great presence, manage their energy and grow old gracefully.

At our best, we perform with consistency and look to make regular, small improvements.

We might not have the longevity of these trees, but we can strive to match their consistent excellence.
