Repeat yourself. Sometimes you have to learn, un-learn, and re-learn.

Repeat yourself. The second time you read a great book you discover nuggets missed the first read. Some things are worth doing twice. Ask yourself: “what could I learn from this now, even though I’ve heard about this before?”

Repeat yourself. Almost no one remembers what you said yesterday. If it’s meaningful, it’s worth saying again. If you’re worried about being redundant, you think too much. You have much bigger problems to spend energy on.

Repeat yourself. You have to do it over and over again to form a habit.

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation: we do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have these because we have acted rightly; ‘these virtues are formed in man by his doing the actions’; we are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit” — Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy: The Lives and Opinions of the World’s Greatest Philosophers (1926)
