Consistency – the key to success

I restarted my blog around this time last year. One day I realised  I  have stopped thinking on my own – my writing and thoughts have been restricted to my professional requirements. It was good enough a trigger for me to relook at blogging..

When I started afresh, it also offered me an opportunity to learn so many things. Because blogging itself had changed so much. Apart from writing posts, there were so many other skills I wanted to learn – making creatives, using different tools etc. I was happy with the initial response to my posts.

There came phase when I completely stopped posting. Not because I did not have anything to post, but just could not put my thoughts together. Weekends passed, weekdays were occupied. That’s when I decided I needed to be consistent.. it comes with so many other things – planning, writing, thinking.  So today for the first time I just logged in and started penning down my thoughts…

Another area I really worked on being consistent is in exercising. I have earlier written about how I overcame the psychological barrier about fitness. But this time I decided to be consistent. I put exercise over everything else for last 3 months – social life, work. The results started showing. I started feeling good, That’s when again I slipped. I missed my sessions. But the good thing was I was missing exercise.. I again decided to challenge my inconsistency..

These and some other things have made Consistency my measurement of success for 2019.  I want to be consistent is every task I do.

What are your tips of being consistent?

 

 

 

 

 

Refresh – making sense of my random thoughts

Years ago I had registered on another blogging platform. But I only started penning my thoughts when I moved to London for my post graduation studies. Today, when I look back at my blog I realize it was my London memoir. I remember, then too I was thinking how can my blog be different from a personal diary. Do I want to publicly share my thoughts?

But what encouraged me was the number of visits my blog started getting. I started to think of new topics to write. Just as they say – it’s one thing to start anything but takes truck loads of determination to sustain it.  I lost my momentum and determination.

Blogging has seen a sea change since 2011 and so have I. This time when the blogging bug returned – I thought of it and said let’s take the plunge again.

So here it is Random Thoughts in a refreshed avatar. I am eager to rediscover my blog and what it brings out. Hit me with ideas / thoughts/feedback on blogging, motivation / sustaining these random thoughts so that you don’t regret visiting this page J
