Habit of the Mind
Striving for accuracy: Check it again! Always doing your best. Setting high standards. Checking and finding ways to improve constantly.
This habit of the mind emphasizes getting a task done correctly as opposed to just getting it done. Put this emphasis into practice with your homework, sports, music or anything you do where quality counts.
