What’s Luck Got To Do With It?

Have you ever read Seth Godin’s blog? One of the things I love about it, apart from the brilliant wisdom he shares, is the length.

Seth is often a man of few words. Somehow, he just knows how to drive home a point without having a to say a lot.

I tend to ramble.

Perhaps it’s because I think more words makes me sound smarter. Possibly it’s because I like the sound of my own typing? On the other hand, I equate quality to quantity, which, if we’re being honest, is really dumb. But I to tend to think more words must mean it’s a better blog.

What’s Luck Got To Do With It?

I’m working on a new studio in our new family home. I shared a couple pics of a couple design drafts on Facebook this weekend. Just two of about a dozen different drafts.

After that, I received a few emails talking about how lucky I am. Lucky to have space. Lucky to be building a studio. Lucky to be able to afford it, and so on and so forth.

That got me to thinking. Thinking about luck. Thinking about wisdom. Thinking about Seth. Could I drop a knowledge bomb like Seth does in just a sentence?

Here goes… it’s not luck. It’s consistency.

Consistently showing up. Consistently doing the work. Consistently fighting excuses. Consistently learning. Consistently growing. Consistently trying. Consistently setting goals. Consistently failing so, ultimately, I can consistently succeed.

I didn’t get here with luck. I got here with consistency.

Is this the part where I drop the mic?

Success isn’t about luck. It’s about consistency.
