Consistency Over Time

I wanted to dive into a topic that’s been crucial for me as I navigate the ups and downs of life and business: the power of consistency. We’re on our ninth episode, kicking off our third month in business – time flies when you’re hustling.

Life throws curveballs at us. Unexpected challenges, setbacks, and even tragedies like the loss of a loved one. Just this morning, I received a text from Taylor, the producer of this show, about his grandfather’s passing. Life doesn’t pause for our plans, and how we respond to these curveballs is a true test of character.

Consistency is my secret weapon against the chaos. I’ve learned that when we fail to plan, we end up reacting to everything that comes our way. Instead of responding thoughtfully, we find ourselves at the mercy of the circumstances. And believe me, I’ve been there. But over time, I’ve developed a system that helps me stay on track, no matter what life throws at me.

Mondays, in my world, are for the mundane. Meetings, the stuff I wouldn’t naturally gravitate towards. I used to schedule content creation on Thursdays, but I’d often find excuses not to follow through. So I made a change – now, Mondays are all about content creation. But I don’t spend hours on it. I took a cue from Erin Marcus and now do a 15-minute live show, then repurpose that content throughout the week.

I structure my week based on what works best for me. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays are grind days for my business. This week, my top priority is training a new operations person. I tackle the challenging and detail-oriented tasks head-on during these days.

Fridays are all about the future. I allocate time to work on myself and my business. It wasn’t always easy for me to step away, especially on Fridays, but I’ve seen the benefits. I’m part of a CEO group that meets on Fridays, and it’s become a vital space for strategic planning and personal growth.

The key is prioritization. I surround myself with smart people who complement my strengths, like Emmy, my virtual assistant, who keeps me on track. Mondays are packed with meetings to set the tone for the week. Accountability is crucial, and paying people to hold me accountable has been a game-changer.

Excellence, as Aristotle said, is a habit. What habits are you cultivating to excel in your life and business? I encourage you to do an analysis, embrace the start-stop-continue methodology, and identify the habits that will make you excellent. Your system might be different from mine, and that’s fantastic – the goal is to find what works best for you.

So, here’s your challenge this week: prioritize your time, define your goals, and execute. We all have the same 168 hours in a week. What will you do, day in, day out, to achieve your dreams? Write them down, set SMART goals, and get out there – because, in the end, the goal is simple: do the fucking thing.
