one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.

day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.

Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.
- Walter Elliot

after the event has already taken place.
