How to Build a Culture of Consistency at Work in 2023

Sometimes, things get in our way and reduce the rate at which we get work done. This is an issue with consistency and how we manage this says a lot about the progress we make at work.

How then can you build a culture of consistency at work?

1. Create a To-Do List

Every day, you should list out things you intend to do at work and commit to it. A to-do list keeps your mind active to the tasks, make you commit to it and ultimately improves your consistency. Our minds play around many things that we may forget basic tasks easily. The only things we are not likely to forget are routine tasks. So, a to-do list generally keeps you on check and helps you know what you should do at certain times of the day, thus improving your consistency.

2. Set Reminders

A to-do list can lie without you ticking off anything. An emergency could come up or something else. Ensure to set constant reminders to help you stay consistent with your plans. A reminder will help you get back in track and make up for items on your to-do list in cases where you cannot ordinarily meet up.  Take it as your friend reminding you to do something again and again. If you are a really stubborn person (not literally though), you should consider setting multiple reminders and alarms that will put you on your toes until you tick off that item off your to-do list.
