‘Without commitment, you’ll never start, but more importantly, without consistency, you’ll never finish.” – Denzel Washington

During his 2017 NAACP Image Awards acceptance speech, Award-Winning Actor Denzel Washington quipped: ‘Without commitment, you’ll never start, but more importantly, without consistency, you’ll never finish.” Building a company or a brand that would stand the test of time requires consistently have a great work ethic and getting things done, day in and day out. We get rewarded in public for what we consistently refine and practice in private. Motivational Speaker and Author Anthony Robbins once said: “If you do the right thing at the wrong time you get pain – do the right thing at the right time and you will be rewarded – and to do that you need to take control of your own conditioning.”

The Key to get anything done is to Determine what is it you want, commit to achieving it and consistently execute your plans and goals. Whether it is losing weight, reading 100 books in a year, running a marathon, writing and passing a certification exam, it requires consistent preparation and commitment to the process of achieving your goals.
