When it comes to today’s topic, I could not agree more. As we strive to make progress on something and create change, consistency is king. Fortunately I’m not the only one who thinks this. Ricky Mendez touches on this in a compelling way.
The universe doesn’t reward scale, it rewards consistency. And I want to go a step further to breakdown why. When it comes to neuroplasticity and literally changing the way your brain is wired, it’s a matter of frequency of activation not intensity of activation. On occasion intensity can implement change, think of trauma or iconic moments, but those moments don’t happen often.
However with frequent and consistent activation your brain can begin to recognize patterns and start to develop in a way that accounts for those patterns. So believe it, it’s not just me saying it, consistency matters, even when it’s small because everything counts!
