Each day, laptop and children permitting, I’ll share a prompt that’s been on my mind, and a few of my thoughts.
You are welcome to share your own perspective in the comments, or just journal it out!
What are the benefits of consistency? Am I consistent? Why or why not?
Speaking of failure, would you consider yourself consistent?
I must admit, I do a pretty good job of getting back up after falling flat on my face.
While my follow-through sometimes leaves something to be desired, change happens in small increments, so, that’s okay – as long as I keep trying.
I didn’t wake up one day and decide to start a podcast. I was an avid listener for over a year, before I thought, “Maybe this is something I would enjoy.”
I thought it over and over again, and that “maybe” turned into “how can I make this happen?”.
– Which turned into reading and fleshing out all of the baby steps.
– Which turned into buying the gear and investing in a class.
– Which turned into setting up all kinds of software logins, working with graphics and narrowing down a target audience, then writing, recording, and launching our first episode.
Most big changes in my life have come about that way.
I met Joe in college because I thought maybe I shouldn’t go home for the summer. I desperately wanted to, but I also wanted to know what it was like to be unfamiliar with something – roommates, routines, neighbors…
When we don’t have the fear of failure constantly hanging over our heads, it’s easier to say, “Let’s try something new.”
“Let’s try something I might be bad at!”
Let’s try again.
That’s what consistency is all about!
As an added benefit, when something isn’t taking you in the direction you want to go, it becomes that much more clear.
Consistency, coupled with purpose, always builds resilience.
Who ever saw that coming?
