Consistency (n): “conformity in the application of something, typically that which is necessary for the sake of logic, accuracy, or fairness.”
As I pen this post at 5:00 a.m. (EST), a few things are apparent. First, few people feel the passion or obligation to write with eyes half open about anything that is not graded or coerced. However grade or no grade, consistency requites one to show up every time, on time.
Second, consistency does not mean you are perfect, it means you are committed. Here are five quotes to chew on:
- “You only live once but if you do it right once is enough.” – Mae West
- “One who makes no mistakes makes nothing at all.” Giacomo Casanova
- “Fame is finally only the sum total of all the misunderstanding that can gather around a new name.”― Rainer Maria Rilke
- “If I’d followed all the rule, I’d never have gotten anywhere.” – Marilyn Monroe
- “Do one thing everyday that scares you.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Third, learning the important discipline of consistency paves the road to victory, however you define it.
