Consistent is Hard, and This is How to be Consistent
Consistency is my biggest enemy. It’s hard for me to stay consistence with everything. I still remember a couple of years ago I tried parkour. I trained parkour for a couple of months until I didn’t train again, because I am not consistent.
Last year, I also tried to study code, and then I paid for an online course, but it’s hard for me to stay consistent, so I stop studying and get nothing.
In another case, I started to study graphic design in 2011 at a vocational school, but after graduating in 2014, I just stop studying graphic design. So my skill did not improve at all. And I started to do graphic design again in 2021 when I become a multimedia staff on the office. Maybe if I am consistent, and continued studying graphic design, right now I will be a better job as a graphic designer.
Not being consistent is my biggest regret right now. I don’t have any speciality because I’m not consistent. Yes, I can do graphic design, writing, photography, and any other skills, but it’s just basic skills. I’m not master it.
After contemplating for a year, I understand what makes me not consistent, and what should I do for being consistent.
I don’t have a goal, so I don’t have a plan
When I tried parkour, learning code, and graphic design, I don’t have any goal. I don’t know what I’m gonna do next for that skills. So I don’t have any plan to still serious learned that skills.
I don’t have a goal, I don’t have a plan, of course, it make me don’t have a motivation.
So right now before I tried something new I will be thinking of a goal, and right now I have a goal to have 550 on the TOEFL ITP score, so I pay an online course and spend time for learning English.
Try to be more competitive
Sometimes I don’t have any motivation to write an article or essay for my blog. So I need to find motivation. And I got motivation for being competitive.
Where do I get motivated? From the writing contest! Follow writing contest is fun, you don’t need to think about a topic, because the topic comes from the committee. The hardest thing in a writing contest just looking for a new perspective for my article or essay.
I have never won any contest until right now, but I will join another writing contest. I think joining a writing contest is good for exercise.
You can get more info about the writing contest on Instagram @kompetisimenulis.
Join community will make anyone meet a new people who have the same goal, or hobby. It will be fun to make friends with someone who has the same hobby or goal.
I also join an online community for the learning Spanish language. I found this community on Line OpenChat, and because of this community, I am very consistent to learn Spanish. I learn Spanish only on Duolingo, and I have 800 days streak. I don’t know if this is a huge achievement or not, but numbers don’t lie, right?
So yeah, I think these points can help anyone to be consistent, in mastering something. Like Ronaldo can be the best in football because he’s very consistent trained in football. Other successful people also consistent do their job for example: Khabib Nurmagomedov, Ellon Musk, and Uzumaki Naruto are consistent do their job so they can be master their skills.
