Many say consistency is the key to success. What if you are consistent at doing the wrong thing, even with the right intention?
You are consistent when it comes to giving to others who take from you without being aware. So they never return the favor.
You are in a consistent state of stress because you are grinding away at your goals and vision. You may be getting more work done, at the expense of your health and well-being.
Sure consistent actions with good intentions have their place.
The harm comes when you lose sight of what is important on a consistent basis.
Giving to others is great, give to yourself first so you have something to give them on a consistent basis. Make your well-being the focus you build your productivity around.
Doing this on a consistent basis will keep you performing at a high level. Keep doing it the short-term way and you lose long-term.
Make a consistent habit of structuring your work around your life and well-being. This will fix the short-term pain, and prepare you to gain long-term.
