Are you consistent?
Do you even think about consistency?
Why SHOULD you think about being consistent?
“For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.”… Anthony Robbins
IF your business is consistently good, then you WILL be successful. Clients will always come back. Think about your favorite restaurant … you know that it will be good every time, or else it wouldn’t be your favorite restaurant.
If you have employees that deliver consistently good work, they are the one’s you come to rely on … they are the first ones you think of at promotion time, they are the one’s you stake your career on, and who you want to bring along with you!
I can hear it now … what about the superstar who “turns it on” and closes the big deals, but is a nightmare 50% of the time? These people are a huge time suck for managers, you spend inordinate hours managing them and the cost associated with their success is a very high price to pay. They are NOT the people you think of at promotion time, they are definitely not the people you want to bring along with you! IF the superstar can ever achieve a measure of consistency, THEN you have someone to nurture!
So … whether you are a superstar or a regular Joe (like most of us), you can always improve by CONSISTENTLY performing to expectations! Become that person people can count on. Become that person who is always there to deliver!
This theme applies throughout your life. Despite the picture above, I am not a golfer … but consistency is a huge goal of any golfer, and applies to any sport. In your relationships your friends and partners want to be able to rely on you and that needs consistency.
It is a trait worthy of some effort!
“Chance can allow you to accomplish a goal every once in a while, but consistent achievement happens only if you love what you are doing” … Bart Connor
