The power of consistency

The power of consistency

... is profound and underrated. Little things done repeatedly lead to big changes in our lives.

Momentum is based on the idea that an object in motion stays in motion.

The truth is that almost nobody has superhuman discipline.

The discipline to do something on a consistent basis is a learned skill. It’s a lifelong work in progress that that requires constant iteration and experimentation.
