Consistency – doing the same thing, the same way, every time. It’s akin to a driving beat, a stable pulse, a steady metronome. Consistency may seem easy or mindless in theory, but it’s difficult in practice. You have to be committed, exacting, uncompromising.
We appreciate consistency at our favorite restaurant, where our steak is cooked to a perfect medium rare and the staff is genuine and attentive every time we dine. We also appreciate consistency at the hair salon, where we get the perfect trim each visit. We rely on consistency for annual auto inspections and oil changes, to make sure we’re driving safely. We’re passionate about consistency during athletic events, as fans become irate at a seemingly unfair or contradictory call from the official.
