How to build consistency?
Everybody tells me they lack consistency. Everybody!
If I have met 10 people today, 9 people have told me they lack consistency.
Now, I don’t know why it’s so difficult for everyone but let me confess. It was difficult for me too when I didn’t know how to master it.
You really need just ONE key to unlock the secret doors of consistency. Just one. It’s focus. It’s that simple.
Focus on one thing first and then keep on doing it again and again. That’s how you get perfect in practicing some thing or rather, anything. That is also basically how you can build consistency. When you build focus and consistency for one thing, only then move on to building the same for another thing and then for the another.
If you aren’t building focus then the consistency isn’t going to come on it’s own. Focus is what drives consistency. If you were doing nothing in an organized manner and now suddenly you have made a routine for yourself with 300 tasks and 250 goals for a day. Then let me tell you, you aren’t going to get consistent at any part of it. Because you aren’t focusing on one single thing or simply put, you’re focusing on nothing.
Now, for example I have a friend who is telling me from 3 years that soon he is going to get consistent at going to gym, praying regularly, reading books and eating a healthy diet. Well, guess what? He didn’t get consistent even at a single thing. All he is consistent at is telling me that he will get consistent.
So all you and he(my friend) needs to do is build focus. Focus on one thing at a time. That was in all bold for a reason. The reason is you can only walk one step at a time and the reason is this is the key that unlocks the door of consistency. Remember …
If you are focusing on too many things. You’re focusing nothing.
Disclaimer: My apologies to my friend whose example I have quoted. But this was necessary. I won’t mind if he punches me in my face for doing this.
