Whether your goal is to save money, invest or start a business, consistency is key. It is no secret that practice makes perfect. However, when to practice and how often to do so maybe harder to discover without trial and error. Luckily, this article will equip you with the simple, starting knowledge you need to practice more consistency.
If you have yet to write down your goals, I suggest you do so. If you have big goals, break them down into smaller steps. The first few may be steps you need to take to begin your goals followed by actions you plan to implement for the long term. For example, if your goal is to save money you may list “get a budget planner” and “check savings account” to begin with, then follow up with “eat out only once a week” or “save every 5 dollars.” After doing so, schedule a time to review these goals as often as you choose to. This will allow you to reflect on which consistency schedule/techniques will work for you.
