Consistently Inconsistent

A high-school hockey coach recognized my partner on defense one year and it was a wake-up call for me. The coach’s remarks were that this player was the most consistent performer he had ever coached.

I’ll bet his consistency seemed all the more important when compared to my performance which was, if anything, consistently inconsistent.

Since then, I’ve tried to remain conscious of the fact that one of the most important factors in counting on someone is the relative confidence that they’ll deliver the same level of performance – every time.
