We all now know that failing is a way to learn. However, failing at consistency regarding social media and content creation isn’t the same.
Consistency is huge. I promised myself that I wanted to make daily videos as they're so simple to do. I want to do them no matter where I am or what I'm doing. So consistency is a big deal for me!
My nose is running and has been since Friday, as well as my eyes have been irritating me. I know I don't have hay fever.
Anyway, consistency is the thing, so today I was planning to make a video, obviously, as it's Monday. But I really didn't want to make it my eye was weeping.
This morning I went for a walk and came back, and my eyes started to irritate me. All of a sudden, I couldn't move it, and it was annoying as hell. So I thought of not gonna make a video today.
But then I thought, wait a minute, consistency! right?
I rested for about two hours and fell asleep listening to podcasts, stuck my hand on my eye, washed it, and now it's got to a stage where it's weeping.
But then I could make the video! Again consistency!
This is the thing that a lot of people fail at. Be consistent in whatever you do, whether it's posting on social media, making videos, or using technology.
When you pick an app and you're not consistent with that app, it can become annoying. If you're not consistent with that app, that tool, that service, you're gonna basically "say it's crap, and I'm not gonna use it".
The problem isn't the app, it's you. You don't have a system, and you're not consistent with that system or with that app to will never get any enjoyment or any benefit from it.
So being consistent no matter what you do is vital. It's what makes you better at that thing.
