The kind of life you are leading today is a compounded consequence of all choices you have exercised all your life up until this moment. The tricky thing with our day-to-day choices is that the consequences are never evident in the immediate moment. They take time to manifest.
Most times, none of the choices we exercise daily come with any immediate consequence. But make no mistake, the choices we make every day will either work for us or work against us in the long run. This is because time amplifies the consequence of our daily choices. What we do today may not matter today, but it will matter when seen over a timeline.
Intensity will only carry us in the short term, but we need consistency if we want compounding results to accrue over time. Time becomes our biggest ally when we do something consistently, even though we may feel like no results are showing daily.
Most of us intuitively know the choices that help us in the long run versus those that don’t.
We need to be consistent if we want our choices to compound. But unfortunately, many times, we try to replace consistency with intensity. E.g., we eat unhealthy for long periods and then get into extreme diets for a week or two, thinking that it will balance out.
Intensity will only carry us in the short term, but we need consistency if we want compounding results to accrue over time. There is a big difference between doing something all the time versus doing something most of the time. Time becomes our biggest ally when we do something consistently, even though we may feel like no results are showing daily.
People who excel in life are not born with any special advantages. They are simply people who are good at exercising the right choices consistently.
So what are the right choices you make consistently, all the time?
