The Key to Progression: Consistency

I hate to be pessimistic and say nothing comes easy and that everything is hard. However, I do want to be honest and realistic with you.

1. Time

They say practice makes perfect and it’s so true. The first year my nephew played baseball, he knew nothing about the sport. He didn’t know how to bat, where to run, or how to catch the ball. He didn’t know any of the rules. Now on his team, there was one kid who was clearly better than everyone else. He knew how to hit the ball and where to go. This wasn’t his first time and he knew what he was doing. To assume that this kid just walked on field and all of this was his first time is just ridiculous. I remember telling my brother, someone has clearly spent a lot time teaching that boy how to play.

2. Work

Okay, so I told you that it takes time. What are you doing during this time? You should be putting the work in. Dedicate your time towards honing your skills.

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” – Bruce Lee

Focus on your strengths and dedicate your time it takes in order to be exceptional.

3. Consistency

If I only go to the gym once a month, I’m not going to get the same results as consistently going 2 days a week. (8 days > 1 day) Now you don’t want to do it so much that you get burned out from it. Have days of rest and do what feels comfortable. Set an amount that you feel like you can stick with for the long term.

Example: I write at least one blog post a week. That’s something I can stick to.

It may not seem like much, but I’m telling you right that that it’s better than nothing. And over time, doing something consistently even if it isn’t very much will bring you progression.


Put the Work in Consistently and over Time you will see results.
