Leadership Lesson: Consistency is the Ally of Strong Leadership
Consistency is the ally of strong leadership.
In other words…
The more consistent you are, the better leader you are.
This thought is front and center after both my HQ and Mission Viejo Fit Body teams executed our EOS Annual 2 Day Planning meetings last week.
While very valuable..
The truth is that it can be hard to execute.
With all the hustle and bustle in life and business, it’s difficult to stay consistent.
You have to be proactive and pull yourself away from all the things on the plate to follow the process.
While tough to do, this my friend is where the magic lies.
As doing 1 Annual planning meeting provides value.
But 1 alone won’t move the needle long term.
It’s the act of quarter in, quarter out, executing the process.
Another example closer to our world is your fitness.
Pushing through a 2 hour gut wrenching workout could be a positive thing for your life.
But doing 1 alone will not get you fit or leave you with 6 pack abs.
Instead, consistently working out even 20 minutes a day will actually get you fit long term.
So while difficult, I promise you this..
When you stay consistent, you look up after a few years and see how far you have come.
As I leave you today, here are some quotes to leave you inspired to be more consistent in 2024.
