Consistency isn’t one if my best traits. I do try very hard to stay consistent. I know it’s a battle for me so I put a lot of effort towards it. This lack in my character lends to spontaneity, interest in new things and some other beneficial traits but still I know it’s one of my downfalls.
One time I had a job interview. They gave me a test. When I met the HR Director afterwards, I asked her about it. She told me that the test indicated I needed to be challenged. I would be great in the position for about 18 months, would perform it better than most but then I’d grow bored and she’d be looking for someone new. I have always remembered that each time I get that antsy feeling at work. I’m 10 years in my current position but it’s different all the time so I guess I found my niche.
This behavior spills over into other parts of my life too. I don’t always care to cook dinner every night. But I love cooking for special occasions. I write volumes and then not at all. I paint many paintings then take a ten year break. But I know what my downfall is and I continue to work to be consistent.
One day at a time. One morning at a time. One journal entry at a time. One, one, one.
