Consistency, this has been my "word" this year. At first it took me a little while to land on it, but consistency has definitely been MY word. I've been hyper conscious and have been trying to be more consistent WITH EVERYTHING!!
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. – Aristotle
It’s actually really hard to achieve, well for me anyway. The problem is that my passions and interests can sometime go in waves, and so too can my momentum and moods. I can be really engaged and going full steam ahead and then I’ll totally get derailed and fall off the track, by the smallest of roadblock. I think it must be an artist thing cause I know so many others that are also like this.
The other night I was chatting online with some friends and this topic of consistency came up in regards to blogging.
So on a whim I thought I'd go ahead and google the word consistency to see what type of imagery would come up. There was a interesting mix of arrows, bullseyes, graphs,cooking batter & frosting, and side by side comparison images, but the one that spoke to me was this one:"Consistency is Better Than Rare Moments of Greatness". Hmmmm what an interesting perspective. What do you think is Consistency really better than Rare Moments of Greatness? And is it that you only get to those "Moments of Greatness" by practicing your craft and being consistent?
