I’m finding that Consistent Persistence is actually key.

My last post discussed how persistence is key to remaining on course and not allowing interruptions, like the current isolation we all find ourselves in, to derail us. Yet, over the past week or so, I have found it is actually CONSISTENT persistence one needs. At least, I do right now.

It has only been since early last week, when I have finally found myself swirling. Not much has changed for me during these strange few months. Both, working from home and working alone is common place. I have done it for decades, even while in corporate. Yet, early last week, I found myself sitting at my desk staring at the computer screen unsure of what to do or where to start.

I wasn’t stuck, I was just blank.

What saved me? My habits and routines.

I sat there at my desk and allowed myself to feel the emptiness of the screen and my mind. Staring at the clock on my computer, I gave myself 10 minutes to feel it. Then, as the tenth minute turned over, I pulled out my journal and started detailing my ‘day in the life’. I knew by just doing that, I would find my starting point, next steps and the end point.

Admittedly, the energy, focus and clarity didn’t flood in immediately, it was more of a trickle. But, I was determined to stay on it, one task at a time, until the fire in my belly started to burn and rise, and I was back, back on target.

I chalk it all up to consistent persistence.  No matter how empty, void, blank or even if you are stuck, do something, anything, to persist and do it again and again and again. Consistent persistence. It will get you back on track as well.
