The Power in Consistency:
Do you agree that it is hard to be consistent?
You set goals and find it difficult to achieve them.
Maybe you want to learn to code, you take the first step but can’t seem to find the courage to take another step. Naturally human nature is against consistency but with time it is something you become if you keep trying and not give up. It becomes your nature.
Learning the power of focus can help.
Can you focus on one thing for 5 minutes?
Yes, sometimes we struggle to focus on one thing for 5 minutes.
- Can you take 2-3 hours once a week just to think, plan and restrategize. No checking your phones, emails, twitter, tiktok etc.
- What do you want to accomplish each day? Set a tone today for tomorrow so that you are not faced with so much confusion tomorrow.
- Take a nap. I must confess I don’t do this as much as I would love to. When I do, I wake up so refreshed and able to do more. I feel like I just recharged my batteries each time.
- Keep your promises- Don’t promise to do something and give yourself 1000 excuses why you are unable to. If you promise to send that email or call do it. It builds consistency.
- Reward yourself for getting things done. Subscribe to Netflix, Amazon prime or HBO, order a good meal, buy something nice for yourself. “You won’t come and come and come and kii yourself”
“Always remember, your focus determines your reality.”
- Qui -Gon to Anakon, Star Wars Episode 1
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought”
“As a man thinks so is he”
- The Bible
I love writing, I work 3-4 jobs, I teach people how to code, I coach businesses and budding entrepreneurs. I finally started learning to play the guitar after more than five years of owning one.
Focus, and making sure I do what I say I will do has been really instrumental to being able to juggle all of these things and not go crazy. Lol
Someone once asked if I ever sleep. Yes! I still get 8 hours of sleep believe it or not. I can be up till 2 am sometimes but then I don’t get up till about 10am with my phone on silence.
