  2. We struggle with consistency when we are unclear about what needs to be done to reach our goals
  3. We tend to struggle with consistency when there is self-doubt
  4. We struggle with consistency when we are perfectionists and holding ourselves to unrealistic expectations.

  1. Write out your goals in present tense
  2. Create a repeatable process
  3. Be cautious with making agreements/promises
