Consistency over intensity

Consistency over intensity

Some business coaches advise their clients to focus on taking massive action in order to get results.

Focus on consistency

If you have a goal of writing a book, and you focus on intensity, you may lock yourself away for thirty days, and write eight hours a day. It will require a huge block of dedicated time and lots of motivation.

  • Instead of writing a 50,000-word book in thirty days, write 500 words a day for 100 days.
  • Instead of going on a two-week fast to get in better shape, eliminate sugar and processed carbs from your diet.
  • Instead of waiting to start your business until you've quit your job, set aside three hours a week and start a side gig.

The intensity approach is more dramatic but slow and steady wins the race.

Steps you can use to employ consistency

  • Get clear on your goal.
  • Identify the right behavior. (i.e., a habit).
  • Track your progress. Create a recurring task in your task manager to reinforce the habit.
  • Enlist an accountability partner. It could be someone who wants to achieve the same goal, a coach, or just a friend who is willing to support you.

Boost your mood

We can change our emotional state by focusing on our physiology rather than our emotions. Using the following tricks can give you energy and an emotional boost to stay productive.

  • Put on some upbeat music.
  • Stand up and stretch. Try to reach the ceiling. Get on your tippy-toes.
  • Take several deep breaths. Oxygenating the blood make you more alert and awake.
  • Get your body moving. The more vigorous you can move, the better. Go for a run, a bicycle ride, or simply a walk outdoors. If you do it for long enough, your brain will release endorphins that elevate your mood.
  • Focus on the positive. Think positive thoughts. Give thanks for what you have rather than complaining about what you don't.

Feeling Guilty For Shopping

As shopping for non-essentials becomes a luxury, our old habits of ordering whatever we want, whenever we feel like ordering, is now making many of us feel guilty.

Before We Click Buy

There are now many things to consider before ordering something:

  • Should we add to the burden of the ‘essential workers’ already toiling hard?
  • Shouldn’t we save the money for the uncertain future?
  • Shouldn’t we give it to a homeless charity, to those less fortunate in these troubled times?
  • Is ordering safe?

Shop Small

This seems to be the new mantra among the responsible people who are worried about themselves and their families. Large supply chains have a greater chance of transmitting diseases. Small shops also need our business to survive this catastrophe.

These small shops are also trying very hard to follow all CDC recommendations regarding protective gear and social distancing.
