“Inconsistency won’t get you to the next level.”
This quote was told to me from my tennis coach and it really resonated with me. In business, consistency is one of the biggest indicators of success, but oftentimes inconsistency creeps into all our daily lives and business.
The parallels in my tennis game to my businesses always makes me think. Inconsistencies won’t get you the next level…whether it is your tennis game or your business.
Consistency in all areas of your business is key. Here are a few examples:
Your business plan must define your vision, goals, and strategies. You must follow this plan consistently to have measurable results. Changing the plan too early or becoming inconsistent with the plan can disrupt your path to growth in your business.
Keeping Your Customers Happy
Your customers look to you as a business they can trust. Inconsistence can lead to distrust and uncertainty – which you never want your clients or customers to feel. Your customers want to know what they can expect from you and consistency is key to this.
Leading by Example
If you are consistent as the leader of your business, your employees will also strive to be consistent. As a business owner, you must lead by example and if you want your employees to be consistent, then you must be as well.
Remember, you must be consistent in all areas of your business. Your business runs on systems and processes and being inconsistent is like throwing a wrench in those systems. How well your business runs and grows depends on your consistency.
Keep evolving, entrepreneur! I see you, I get you, and I’m so proud of you.
