Even the most consistent people have inconsistencies. It goes along with being human.

I watched the most consistent golfer, Tiger Woods be inconsistent this past 5 days. There are a number of excuses people have offered for his anomaly, but none that he’ll use. “I just didn’t get it done” will be his mantra until he rediscovers his consistency.

I worship consistency.

I’m not recommending that you join my church because there’s a lot of disappointment involved. The God of consistency doesn’t always show up. Actually, he does, but doesn’t always bring the brand of consistency I’m looking for.

The version I can’t get my arms around is consistent inconsistence.

I prefer it to be spring when it’s springtime. I understand the occasional unpredictable snowstorm in mid April, but by and large, I’m expecting to see flowers bloom, grass grow and some idiot teenager speed loudly down the street. That’s consistent.

I guess what I’m really looking for is something I can count on in a world that’s poor in math. It’s a warm fuzzy for me.

Here’s the rub. If you’re poor in math and it’s a necessary skill to get what you want, you have to do whatever is necessary to learn math. Most people won’t make the effort and will blame something else. Here’s the unspoken truth: It’s not worth it to them.

Find an area of your life where you’re inconsistent. You may give tons of lip service to consistency being important to you in this area, but it’s not if you remain inconsistent.

You’re at a crossroads when you discover you’re not willing to make the effort.

I call it the “End of Pretend.”

It’s time to move off your illusory position and tell the truth.

It’s time to look for something else worthy enough of your efforts; otherwise you’ll consistently spin lies and your wheels and stay stuck in the mud.

The truth is: “The truth will set you free.” It opens the door to an area where you can be consistent.

All the best,
