The older I get, and the more things that I work on/at I am finding more and more 90% of success is consistency.
Penned 2 years ago.
It was 76°F in San Diego, CA and the sky was clear.

Whether it be writing, doing VLogs or being a good father, consistency make the difference. When I finally got my site up and running on Apple News, I made the commitment to publishing 3 articles a day, 3 times a week.
This was an idiotic thing to do. I knew that going in. But with effort and consistency I have fallen into a comfortable rhythm of publishing 2 - 3 articles twice a week. Previously I went weeks, sometimes months, between articles.
Merely making the decision to be consistent was enough, ultimately, to achieve consistency. We are such creatures of habit for good or ill. Hacking the habitual nature of our brains can help you achieve some pretty cool things.
I have taken this new found confidence in my ability to hack in consistency, and applied it to the aforementioned videos and soon a web comic.
Will I always hit the mark? Of course not, but I will find a happy medium that allows me to consistently produce quality content, and that's all I can really ask for.
It's all any of us can really ask for at the end of the day.
I hope you enjoyed reading Consistency
