The Power of Consistency

Write that one page in a book each day, you’ll have a novel by end of a year. Compose that one song a week, you’ll have an album in a few months. Constant and consistent action will lead to results.

In this blog post I will write about the power of consistently taking action towards a goal. Constant and consistent action can yield impressive results over time. Let’s unpack this idea.

Imagine you are a blog writer and you produce, on average, one blog post a month. In a year you will have 12 blog posts. Imagine if you increased the frequency with which you posted to your blog so you now post to your blog once a week. In this case, after a year you will have 52 blog posts on your website. That’s not too bad actually. 52 high quality posts on a website is a decent start to building a blog.

Increasing the frequency

Now, imagine if you increased the frequency with which you posted to that blog to every single day. Now you will have 365 blog articles written in a year. That’s actually impressive if you think about it. A website with 365 blog entries would probably contain quite a bit of content. The content that you created over the 365 day period would inevitably contain a wide range of topics because you would get bored of writing about the same things all of the time.

A blog with 365 articles written on it would actually be considered a decent blog by many people and it only took you a year to make. Just by writing one article a day. Writing that blog article doesn’t have to take up your whole day either. You can be working a job or doing other things while you work on your blog but just make sure to spend the time to produce at least that one blog post per day.

If you have more time and creative energy on your hands, post two blog articles a day, that’s 730 blog posts in a year. 3 blog posts a day would be 1095 blog posts in a year. The only limit is your creativity.

In conclusion, I just want you to think about the power of consistency and how taking small actions each day can add up to big results over time. Write that one page in a book each day, you’ll have a novel by end of a year. Compose that one song a week, you’ll have an album in a few months. Constant and consistent action will lead to positive results.
