Commitment AND Consistency = Future Success

Jan 08, 2024

Commitment: the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause or activity (source: Oxford Languages)

Consistency: conformity in the application of something (source: Oxford Languages)

Commitment and Consistency = a winning combination. Similarities, yes. But, one without the other leaves a precarious void. You can't do one well without the other.

And this is where I failed you.  I will give no excuses. 

My weekly Monday Mindset has been MIA. First, I missed 1 week then another week and almost missed this week! But, instead of Monday, I'm landing on a Tuesday evening. Eye Roll. Thus the title, "Tuesday Trauma (tongue in cheek not to be insensitive to those who have experienced true trauma)."

How did this happen?  I wasn't sick, didn't have an injury, and no one needed me. I didn't experience a technology breakdown or a natural disaster. No logical excuse. FYI...finding and sharing excuses is a lousy way to live life. 

Nope I can only tell you it was the tyranny of the urgent. 

The tyranny of the urgent prevents me from doing the important. 

I made a commitment to communicate with you on a consistent basis so you could get to know me. 

Consistency fell away. 

But nothing happens until I commit.  And I mean deep commitment, not superficial words.  My actions must reflect my values.  Psst....this apply to life/relationships, too. 

Without commitment and consistency you can't rely on me. 

What haunts me is the quote, attributed to Martha Beck,
"How I do one thing is how I do everything."

Where else in my life do I not show the winning combination of commitment and consistency? 

What's important to you? Are you showing commitment and consistency? 


Your Success, My Support.
