Consistency, the word of the day. I am great, when it comes to preparing and starting a project. I am even great, when it comes to completing a project. The problem, I believe, is in the details. Those day to day, boring steps that come in between the exciting beginning and exhilarating ending can sometimes fall through the cracks. I make an effort to do these things, and I get them done, but sometimes they’re done late or sloppily, because I just don’t find them to be as important as other things.
I read somewhere that this very scenario is a part of my personality as an introvert/teacher. I care about making a difference, and I am always passionate about my work, but those routine tasks that need to be done in order to move to the next phase are soooooooo boring to me.
I’m working on staying consistent in everything. It will do me some good to not only understand this about myself but to also do something about it. Gary Vaynerchuk says to hire someone to do the things that I know I don’t want to do. Someone out there is passionate about the very things that I shuck. I think that may be my solution.
Ahh…resolution. I love it. I’ve known the answer for quite some time now, but I’m not sure why it just dawned on me. How many things do we know, but ignore until the time is right for us to finally pay attention to it? How much time do we waste sitting on valuable information that we could have been using, if only we took the time to reflect, write it down, observe it from another angle?
Just another reason I love journaling. It provides solutions to problems and offers fresh perspective. Which reminds me…I literally wrote out a whole game plan, and have yet to execute on it. (smh) I’ll get to that now.
