Being consistent is critical to both short term and long term success. If you want on-going success than doing something once just doesn’t cut it.
- The word consistency means doing something the same thing time and time again.
- To create a predictable routine, that generates the same results.
- To do something in a systematic way on a regular basis.
- The absence of contradictions.
When we create consistency in our work, we make it easy for our team, our suppliers and our clients to know what to expect from us. They get used to knowing how things get done, what they can expect and when they can expect it. Contrary to popular belief this doesn’t make us boring, but rather we become reliable and dependable, and someone that others can count on.
Consistency has been hailed as the cornerstone of ethics. It implies an inner integrity. By being consistent with who we are, it shows up in our words and in our actions. As we all are aware actions speak louder than words; therefore acting in a consistent manner will provide evidence to those around us that we have integrity and through this trust is built.
Imagine what your life would look like if you were able to achieve true consistency. What would your business look like, what would your relationships look like?
YOUR CHALLENGE: Look at consistency in your life, where does it show up and what can you do to get more of it.
