“Don’t just read it like a story, read it like a learner.”
Hello guys, I hope you all are doing well in your life. Today’s topic is a very demanding one, “How does consistency work and how to maintain consistency for a long period?”
Well, firstly, we will try to understand the meaning of the word “consistency”. If I will try to explain it in simple words, then it simply means doing something with relative learning on a daily basis. Consistency helps to turn your habit into a part of your identity.
Let’s have a look at some examples. We all know about Virat Kohli, he says that my life is very boring. It is a conscious effort to eat sleep train repeat. He says that doing the same thing daily is not a choice while it’s a necessity, for achieving mastery in that work. He says that it’s not easy to maintain consistency but it’s also not that much tough.
Well, we all know that maintaining the same routine for a long time is really boring, but always remember that you can do anything from the day you stop doing everything. If you really want to achieve mastery in any field then firstly you need to eliminate other options. We need to keep things simple. But again there’s a question comes, that fine we know the importance of consistency but how to maintain it. Let’s try to solve this problem. There are 5 points which will surely help you to maintain consistency but the remember that things work only when you start implementing.
- Keep your eye on your why (and if right now you don’t know ‘the why’, then whenever you feel to quit, at that time must ask to yourself that why had you started it, whether for achieving it or for leaving it?).
- One thing at a time (because you are not a superman, start from zero so that you feel motivated and choose only one thing at a time).
- Don’t prioritize your schedule, schedule your priorities — Steven Covey (make your to-do list on a daily basis, it really works and always give first preference to your most urgent and most important work).
- Sometimes it’s good to ignore our feelings (it’s true that sometimes, we even don’t want to do the work that we love the most. Just accept it that it’s very obvious and don’t need to react on it. Just again start doing your work).
5. No issue in falling but learn to get up fast (again as I said, we are not superman, so we can do mistakes right. And this is very obvious that some days will also come when because of some reason, we will not able to maintain the continuity. At that time, instead of feeling depressed or blaming yourself, you would need to get over from that problem as soon as you can and start again).
Let’s summarize these 5 points:
- Keep your eye on your why.
- One thing at a time.
- Don’t prioritize your schedule, schedule your priorities.
- Sometimes it’s good to ignore your feelings.
- No issue in falling but learn to get up fast.
