One of the things I struggle with is consistency. I’m a worker bee and I try to be a great friend, but I’m not exactly the most consistent. I guess you could say that consistency is my Achilles’ heel. I realize that it’s a weakness but when I feel myself slipping, I strive for it. In my personal relationships I crave it. It is oftentimes overlooked but the idea of being consistent and reliable is more important than you may realize.
This topic is a recurring theme in my life. My participation in school is rather inconsistent. I don’t always return phone calls to my parents. As my motivation wanes so does the production of my work.
I think a part of being consistent is recognizing long term goals. If you set your sights on the short term, there is no standard at which to hold yourself accountable. In what ways do you try to be more consistent? Have you been successful?
