” In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.” Tony Robbins
Hey, I certainly do not feel like writing anything at the end of this first day of the week (well, actually eventhough it’s past 5 o’clock, the end of the day is quite long to go).
But being consistent is (well..) being consistent. If it’s a blog on my daily two cents than be it rain or shine, snow or typhoon (God forbid), then it should be written and published on daily basis.
The quotes above from one of motivational experts (Tony Robbins) can’t just be any truer; in my own words, we are the product of our consistent actions.
How to be consistent
So, how do you push yourself to that state of being consistent? I guess the underlying motivation could be the engine that keeps pushing you even forward.
Both ‘deliberate practice’ (the concept from http://www.amazon.com/Talent-Overrated-World-Class-Performers-EverybodyElse/dp/1591842247) and ‘10,000 hours of rule’ (the concept made popular by Malcolm Gladwell in Outlier http://www.gladwell.com/outliers/outliers_excerpt1.html) suggested that we need that long and continuous process of practising our trade/skill/etc to reach that ‘world class level’).
In the final analysis, we have to pursue whatever dream/ambition/end-in-mind that we have in a consistent manner.
