How to stay consistent

6 Aug 2022

In my last article, I spoke about consistency and why we need to stay consistent. In the bid to stay consistent, we would not exactly find what works for us after the first try. It will take a lot of time, trials, and errors before we eventually find the best method to stay consistent. As hard as it may sound, we still have to try. As they say "nothing good comes easy". Here are a few ways you can cultivate consistency:

Set realistic goals: If you do not know what needs to be done, it will be hard for you to be consistent. Create easy, straightforward objectives that are simple to monitor a result. You may begin by outlining your definition of consistency. Then, you should think of smaller steps you must do to accomplish that goal.

Give yourself time: It will take time even though you want to see results right away. It might be challenging to alter your way of thinking, and you might not experience immediate effects. Uprooting your entire life and introducing a lot of new practices all at once might be challenging. You should therefore give yourself time to determine what works best for you.

Keep going even if you make mistakes: Even the most reliable and well-prepared individuals occasionally make mistakes. Be prepared for failure, and don't be too hard on yourself if you make a mistake. It does not necessarily mean that you are not consistent if you have to cancel an appointment, breach a promise, or miss a deadline. Occasionally, despite our best efforts, outside forces can cause problems. Make plans for your failures and setbacks. Consistency does not equal perfection.

Take time off: Being consistent does not imply that you are working nonstop. Giving yourself time off will actually increase your productivity and prevent burnout. Make time for yourself on your calendar and don't let work or other obligations interfere.

Keep going even if you make mistakes is a valid point. Sometimes we get overwhelmed by failure and forget to learn from it and forge ahead.
