Being consistent is a remarkably powerful way to work and is probably the key to doing anything significant. The person who puts in an hour of practice every day will consistently outperform the person who tries doing ten hours per day but quickly burns out and gives up. The most significant difference between a peak performer and an amateur is consistency. The peak performer puts in the practice, day in and day out, over a long time, and they get to reap the rewards.
The power of consistency is that it lets you focus on the process and not only the result, which helps with spotting mistakes and making improvements. I remember reading somewhere that natural talent will only take you so far against somebody who practices every day at something they love. In that spirit, I’m going to be more consistent with writing and publishing my thoughts here.
