How Consistency is Key to a Healthy Bottom Line | Barefoot Design Collective
You want to be more productive and Get more stuff done, right? You want to make a lot of progress and start to move that bottom line and make your business more profitable, right? Of course you do! It’s the goal in some way, shape, or form for most of us, especially entrepreneurs. Most of us think we have to make big leaps to get there. But here’s a secret for you. It really doesn’t have to be that way. If you focus on being consistent and do something to make progress every single day, you’ll definitely increase your chances of success.

We learned that consistency is key from the turtle and the hare.

turtle shows that consistency is keyThere’s so much truth in that parable and it applies to all areas of life, including your business. Of course, you can go all out and get a lot of work done all at once. And there is, for sure, a time and place for that. Like when you put in long, hard hours for a couple weeks getting ready for a new product launch. Or when you’re first setting up your website. You shouldn’t make that your default strategy, though. Why, you ask? Because you’ll burn out.

Burnout is a serious problem.

Most entrepreneurs have experienced it and it can take a long time to recover from. A much better, and healthier strategy – besides those brief periods of hustle – is consistency. If you put in the effort to accomplish somethingevery single day , you’ll make a lot of progress in the long run. In a years time, you’ll go further and your business will grow more than if you overdo it and then go into a slump because you have no energy for anything else.

Don’t forget, slow and steady wins the race.

It’s so much easier to motivate yourself to get something done that takes fifteen minutes and to do it every day, than something that takes you hours. It’s also much easier to justify not doing something that’s hard or takes a long time. Instead, keep it simple, make it enjoyable, and make it a habit to do it each and every day. You’ll get more done over time by putting in 30 minutes a day, six days a week, instead of two hours a couple times a week. Making something a habit is one way consistency can help you grow your business. But there’s something else that will work in your favor as you start to put in that small bit of effort every day. You will be building momentum to carry you much further than you would have gotten otherwise.

Let’s give this a try.

I challenge you to shift your mindset towards a focus on consistency. This will allow you to continue to grow, expand, and most importantly move the needle in the right direction when it comes to your bottom line.
I accumulated small but consistent habits that ultimately led to results that were unimaginable when I started.
