Over the years, I have often highlighted the importance of consistency. Working hard on a consistent basis is not enough however if you lack clearly defined goals. As an old saying suggests, if you don’t know where you are going, almost any road will get you there. Therefore, it is entirely possible to work hard, yet struggle to progress due to a lack of clarity. In other words, your hard work is disorganized, thus never concentrated towards a precise goal. As a result, minimal progress is made in any particular direction.
