Go for consistency or quality?
I know I’m late this week. The reason for that is that I’ve been struggling with this question — consistency or quality?
Things are getting hectic.
I’m moving apartments soon and have to figure things out for that, my thesis deadline (that I’ve been procrastinating on) is starting to come closer and closer, I’m involved with some projects that are getting busier and busier — the pressure has been high the last couple of days. That’s why I skipped last weekend’s newsletter as well as video.
However, it’s an explanation and not an excuse – while missing a video is OK (my rule is that I can skip one weekend, but not two in a row), I had committed (to myself) to writing once a week, and I feel bad and guilty for missing my commitment.
I guess this answered the question about consistency or quality, for me. The fact that I’m feeling guilty about it, and writing on a Wednesday morning instead to try and make up for it, shows me that consistency is more important for me.
The HEC Paris campus is looking really pretty lately.
What about you?
What is more important for you? Consistency — keeping up with your commitments and routines, irrespective of the quality of the final outcome — or quality?
Would you deliver what you consider “just OK” work for the sake of consistency? Or would you not deliver at all if it’s not what you consider quality?
