Consistently Inconsistent!

What makes you stay consistent?

Is it the need to achieve? Or the drive to become?

Is it the incessant desire to prove something to people?

I asked this question on my social media and got a few responses:

  • Vision.
  • Positive reinforcement.
  • Love.
  • Instruction.
  • Knowing there’s no other choice.
  • I’m consistent with inconsistency…

To be honest, the last response hit closest to home for me. But I find that I am also consistent with being relentless. I am a few hours late on this post and mad at myself, but one question I never fail to ask is:

If I beat myself up… What’s the outcome?

If I give up… What’s the alternative?

Doing something – no matter how infinitesimal it seems – is ALWAYS, (I repeat) ALWAYS better than doing nothing. (To be honest, not exactly sure how this relates to consistency, I reckon I’ll talk more on this in another post).

I guess that’s my answer though. That’s what drives me to have any semblance of “consistency”. The knowledge that I won’t be able to live with myself if I throw in the towel. That’s a mad propelling force right there.

As long as I stay CONSISTENT, albeit inconsistently, in some (weird) way, I am (some typa) consistent? And I tell you, that counts for something.

Maybe as I go on, I will gain more practical skills that will throw me deep into the sea of consistency, and when I do, I’ll be sure to share. But, for now, I refuse to give up, no matter what! Yes, even when I am not consistent.

How ’bout you (pronounced as ‘chew’)?

  1. Great post – inconsistent consistence might just be your process. Perhaps stepping away for a moment provides perspective and insight. Learn yourself. Know your rhythm and be ok with it. Play the long game ☺️
