I have a card from my business coach Mark Leblanc sitting right in front of me. I see it every day. On the card is a picture of Mark speaking (he is a professional speaker), and at the bottom it says “Consistency Trumps Commitment.”
I get it.
I’m committed to things, including my business and business growth (Mark is a business growth coach, and was actually part of the inspiration for the 2012 theme).
But magic (or success) happens when I consistently do the right things.
I can be committed to doing the right things, but until I actually do them I don’t see success.
And doing them is one thing… but I can’t do them one day a week, or one day a month, I need to consistently do the right things.
Consistency trumps commitment.
Commitment + consistency is amazing.
This year we’ll talk about consistency. That’s the theme. I’ve been working on that for a few years, since I met Mark, and I can testify that it is one of the most powerful parts of my business growth.
It will be a powerful part of your career management. Let’s make 2013 AWESOME!
