Consistency Starts with Caring

It’s difficult to be consistent when you don’t care about what you are doing.

Not caring is probably a sign you should quit and find something else you care about. (With a few exceptions, like responsibilities and dips).

There’s many flavors of not caring. Being bored, for example. If you are bored out of your mind at your job, then you obviously try to cut as many corners as you can without getting fired.

There are often episodes of boredom, where you like what you are working towards, but first you have to go through a period of doing things you couldn’t care less about. These are moments we need to stick it out and keep going. Visualizing the finish line helps. Keeping in touch with the bigger picture of why you are doing what you helps too.

Other examples of not caring: feeling obligated, caring less (than other things you care more about), feeling apathetic, and accepting failure as final.

Caring is usually the first step. Caring enough to start your podcast. Caring enough to practice guitar every week. The more we care, the more likely we will stay consistent no matter what tries to get in the way.
