The only difference between people that are happy, rich and successful is that they have consistency.
And the most important part of Elon Musk’s day is his morning shower.
You are probably thinking what’s so important about that?
The consistency of his morning shower allows him space to look after himself and sets him up for the rest of the day.
Why You Are Not Consistent
So, if consistency is so important, why isn’t everyone trying for this?
Well, first you need to think back to your past.
Going to school would have been the first time you were expected to be consistent. You must get in on time and do your homework; Monday to Friday, 5 days a week.
As many of us did, you probably saw school-work as time-consuming, difficult and boring; you couldn’t wait to leave and do your own thing.
Fast forward to being an adult and working is another consistent, Monday to Friday 9-5, and again, you can’t wait for the weekend when you can have a lay-in and spend time doing what you want to do.
If this is the way you see consistency, then no wonder you don’t want to be consistent in your day to day life.
A New Relationship
In order to change this, you need to relate to consistency as something not bad – but instead, as something empowering, motivating and easy.
Personally, I keep a work diary so that I know what I am doing day-to-day. Whether it’s doing a YouTube video, a blog post or doing things that I want to do to relax.
It doesn’t all need to be work work work.
Therefore, if you start finding consistency as powering and motivating then you will start to actually enjoy sticking to your schedule, completing your tasks and enjoy your downtime when you have the time for it.
