Consistency

con·sist·en·cy- (noun) in the application of something, typically that which is necessary for the sake of logic, accuracy, or fairness. (Oxford Dictionary)

I feel that it is very important to remain consistent as a business owner. To be honest, without planning and consistency you won’t get that far. This can be applied to your everyday life as well. I am not as consistent as I would like to be, but I would like to share a few tips that I use.

1. Use a planner. Without a planner I don’t know how I would make it day to day. I write down every thing. My planner keeps me on track, so I can’t forget about anything that I need to do. I write everything down including my work schedule, meetings, events, and even blog post and social media post. I don’t know what I would do if I lost my planner.

2. Set Goals. Without goals you won’t really know what you are working towards. Goals can be both short and long term. Once you set a goal, break it down into smaller steps so that they are more attainable. Writing your goals down or even making a vision board has been proven to help people achieve their goals. It’s something about being able to physically see your goals. Every night before you go to bed, write down all of the things you would like to achieve the following day. Make a list with the top three most important things that you would like to accomplish that day. Once you get your day started, you will know what you need to do versus having to scramble and figure out what needs to be done. As you accomplish your daily task, cross them off your to do list!

3. Find an accountability partner. This is by far one of the best things I have done. Having an accountability partner helps keep me on task. My accountability partner and I discuss our weekly goals once a week; we also tell each other our goals for the following week so that we can be held accountable. Your accountability partner is someone that can help to motivate you on days that feel down or aren’t motivated. Your accountability partner should be someone that understands what you are trying to accomplish. My accountability and I don’t reside in the same state; to be honest, we’ve only seen each other in person once! We originally met on Instagram and have been business buds since!

What different things are you practicing to help you remain consistent?
