Consistency is Your Trump Card
Consistency is that one things that trumps all else.
It allows for an off day. It allows for us to forget to take out meat from the freezer. It allows us to reach for a candy bar instead of a salad.
But then we start right back up again.
Consistency is also what others know us for. If someone described me in how I ate, how I slept, how I trained, how I grocery shopped, they would do a great job if they had a knowledge base of my normal actions. If I normally eat wonderful foods fixed right at home and train hard which helps me to sleep well, they will know this from knowing me. Since they have had conversations with me, they know I am proactive and supplement my sleep and health, and love to grocery shop quickly.
Often we think of consistency as what we do. It is that, but it is also what we are known for.
It is rare that I stray off the path and don’t train 4 times a week. Strange, but it’s true that I stress out and overindulge in sweets. These are not normal patterns for me.
What is your normal? What do you do over and over that people know you’ll do the next time and almost every time?
Consistency beats out intensity every time.
To your best health,
