Human beings are quite interesting. You see, the more we learn- the more likely it is-- we will realize how little it is that we know!So, my hypothesis is that the more any human being knows… the more likely they are to recognize know little they actually know. This is very true in the leader development process. The other day a friend and I discussed 4 common stages of leader development. The 4 stages are listed below. stage #1: Unconsciously Incompetent. In this stage, we are oblivious to what we do/ don’t know or know. Thus, we may think we know more…
In life, it is quite simple if you want to be a leader and differentiate yourself from the many followers out there… you must be CONSISTENT. I cannot stress this word enough.
Based on its definition in the dictionary, consistency can be described as being marked by harmony, regularity, or steady continuity and free from variation or contradiction.
Also, showing steady conformity to character, profession, belief, or custom.
So with that said, who would NOT want to be consistent. In any new habit you try to create you will only be successful if you are consistent.
Five thoughts on consistency.
1. Consistent people tell the truth so they do not need to remember what "lie" they told.
2. Consistent people are loyal to their employers or employees day in and day out.
3. Consistent people live a well rounded and balanced life all year long.
4. Consistent people get regular physical exercise and spiritual reflection.
5. Consistent people behave the same way day in and day out.
In short, and there are so many more examples… it is ALL about consistency.
Are you consistent?
