being consistent

This quote is from the Deputy Headmistress at The Common Room from this post about teaching diligence.
This word consistent is often a discouraging word, isn't it? But let me share that if you aim for consistency and fail you will still have far more successes than if you throw your hands up in despair as soon as you see the word and decide not to even try. That sentence was for me, Gentle Readers.
(Hmm...it seems to be in much the same vein as last week's quote.)

Oh, this is so good for me! I hesitate to 'start' stuff sometimes for fear of not doing it EVERY day... thanks!

As a mom of two now grown and making their own way, and a daycare provider for the past 21 years, consistency has always been my motto. Kids strive on it...if only some of the parents would learn how to use it
effectively...it would make my job easier.
