A friend asked, "When you like something very passionately, then, why are the practices not regular?".   "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a Habit", says Aristotle.

When we have an interest and we also know that excellence comes from practicing, repeating our actions, day by day, drip by drip, as Seth Godin stresses, why would we not be consistent with our practices ?

Could it be that we drop the ball because the path seems too long or is it lack of focus ? Will  celebrating small and short term goals motivate us while we continue to repeat till the final goal. Will better planning help ?

If Consistency is the key, what is the key to consistency ?
