Today I want to write about something that is very important, but has been a stumbling block for me over the past few months – consistency!
When we plan and start working towards achieving some goals, in addition to prioritising, we need to learn to be consistent.
We will never find all doors open to us or things coming our way easily. We need to work on them and learn to persist, even when we do not obtain the results we expect.
I know we sometimes get discouraged or so busily caught up in our routine that we tend to put aside what we were once so eager to achieve.
I am going to give you an example of my own. I set the goal of writing one blog post a week which means at least four new messages every month.
It seemed so reasonable and, to a certain extent, a very achievable target. I thought so too, but in practice it hasn’t worked out as I planned.
I knew I would have a series of trips, meetings, events and other responsibilities that would not make it easy to reach my goal, but what I could not foresee was that they would affect my consistency.
You may have noticed that I only managed to write two articles a month!
Honestly, I feel like giving up the idea, but I know that if I do not train myself to insist on the right course of action, I will not reach my goal.
So, the word of the moment for you and me is consistency. Train yourself to do what is necessary in order to achieve your goal. Do it repeatedly until it becomes second nature.
Even if I fail again in posting one article a week, although I will strive not to, I will be consistent in doing what I have planned.
Share with me in which areas you too lack consistency!
