Consistency Beats Most Everything Else

I don’t really take weeks off. I post every week. 52 posts a year across 2 mediums. How?? I write every day, even if it’s just a little. And I map out each week at the beginning of the month.

I use Google Docs and I have each article for the month titled under the date I intend to publish it. The articles look rough at first (sometimes just one word, yikes). I fine-tune them as the month goes on. The unfortunate truth is you’re easy to forget. We all are. So if you’re not consistent with your content, you get forgotten.

I know, you think you may be missed. And maybe you would be. But not for long, I promise. I’m not being a jerk. Just shooting straight with you. You read this now. You might even really enjoy it. But you’ll forget about me until next Tuesday, when maybe you’ll do me the honor of reading my next post.

It’s human nature. ‘Out of sight, out of mind’ has always been truer than ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’.

Tell me what you’re consistent with at or on Twitter, @caitmackcs.
