What is excellence?

"Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."

Life's small victories

I write most often about plans, aspirations and attitudes for the future in my personal diary. Failures and setbacks serve as reminders of either what could've been done better or of what not to do again. The things least documented are life's victories, big or small. From now on, I shall endeavour to record them too.

So I shall start with this one: I got a job! Cong's deacon has agreed to take me in. Pay is what you would expect for a graduate architect, but it's not the main point of the story. What will really count is the experience gained in designing a house and getting the plans approved by the council. Now that would be something worth putting in a resume. Not some dead end job that pays well.

To God be the glory!
