Happy Autumn everyone!
The beginning of this specific season is a little stressful for all us because it usually means that we return back to daily routine whatever that is, we may start new efforts, or set new goals in order to achieve our dreams. September always has this explosive mixture of overwhelmed anticipation and inner challenge.
From yesterday, I’m thinking the meaning of consistency in all these expectations. When I was younger at school, I used to deal with daily routines as tedious tasks that I had to accomplish in order to avoid the problems with my parents and my teachers. But, daily routines are much more powerful than keeping us away from troubles. Step by step, they built our character and our life.
So, if we want to achieve a goal at the end of the year, instead of feeling anxious and worrying, we should establish a daily routine of a few minutes in order to practice. It is so simple and it is like a muscle gym. You won’t manage much with an exhausting program of ten hours, once per month. But, definitely, you will achieve more when you follow a thirty minutes program, four times per week.
“We become what we repeatedly do”, the Greek philosopher Aristotle wrote before a thousand years. That’s why it is essential to establish the right habits and daily routines for our goals and stay consistent with them.
So, here my favorite quotes about daily routines and consistency:
I. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
II. Your true power is not in your difference but in your consistency of being different. The world will always adjust to consistency, yet struggle with change.
Shannon L. Alder
III. In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.
VI. Consistency is the hallmark of the unimaginative.
V. It’s your duty to build your brand daily not in a day.
