A Few Thoughts On Consistency

Today I received my last Sojourner medal in Ingress.  It’s a deceptively simple one to earn – get within a certain distance of a game portal and perform a certain game action daily. The number of days starts at 15 and  increases over time.


As of today, I have visited a portal 360 days in a row. The nearest portal is at the end of the block, so not a big trip. At the same time, I’m a bit surprised with myself for this.

I grew up being told I’m not capable of consistency because I was not able to keep to diet for years on end. But maybe it’s not that I’m incapable of consistency. Maybe it’s that some things are impossible.

  1. I hope I haven’t been missing your posts, but this is the first one I’ve seen in a very long time. I missed them, and you. How are you?

  2. I completely agree with you that diets are generally impossible to stay on. They’re all covertly set up for failure from the get-go, leaving us to blame ourselves in the end when they fail. Consistency is born from enjoyment. Glad to hear you’ve found an activity you enjoy that also doubles as a source of movement. I’ve gotta try that game out!

  3. Few things are impossible, only very difficult.
