“Excellence is not an act but a habit. The things you do the most are the things you will do best.”
-Marva Collins (1987)
It would be easy if talent was all it took for us to achieve excellence. But it doesn’t work that way. On “American Idol” there are many singers with talent. But the ones who have the most experience really stand out. The experience of singing for people over and over again hones their skills, and when the competition day comes, their excellence shows. We even see how week after week, each of the singers seems to get better. They’re in an environment where they are focusing their energies and spending their time to cultivating excellence.

Daily Tarot: The Devil
Your instincts may be heightened and a bit off today, and this could lead you to make some wrong decisions or assumptions. Then, you run the risk of pouncing on these assumptions and acting out of a bad impulse. Keep your emotions under control and back away from impulsive actions of any kind. Today they are traps that lead to embarrassment at best, and harm at worst.
