Habit of Mind – Striving for Accuracy

“Measure twice, cut once”  ~anonymous

In every endeavor from athletics, art, science, medicine, music, engineering, etc. striving for accuracy is valued and admired.

People who value accuracy, precision, and craftsmanship take time to check their products. They continue to perfect their craft by working to attain the highest possible standards.

Helping students strive for accuracy at home, in extra-curricular activities and at school can help increase their chances for excellence in learning and in their own life successes.

“A man who has committed a mistake and doesn’t correct it is committing another mistake.”  ~Confucius
