The Secret Behind Consistency - What Goes On In The Mind of Inconsistent People

It's easier said than done. "What goes on in the mind of inconsistent people". Seriously?

Who isn't inconsistent in today's world?

Not me. Not you.

The thing is we all are going to be inconsistent at sometime or the other. So, what we can try to do, is be try to bring consistency into our lives as much as possible.

So the apt title of this blog post should be "The Secret Behind Consistency - What Goes On In The Mind of Us, Normal People"
The Problem With the "Consistency Is Key" BullshitMost people who spew non-sense that consistency is key are not consistent themselves.

And that's the problem with consistency. With time, your priorities may change depending on the urgency of an impending work. So, how do you manage or work with your goals?

That's what I wanna talk about here.

Small Improvements Make Big Changes - A Story Of My Failure

I know. It's been long. But, that's my problem. That's always been my problem. I could control my ADHD (took half of my life to do it), curb my procrastinating habits by a good extent, control my phone addiction which was another procrastinating habit, become a hell lot more productive but heck.... this is still an area I have no control on.

My last post was on March 22 and the one before that had been published on January 3. Pretty "irregular", is it not? The thing is, I can't even bloody hell hope to grow this blog by moving at the pace, I am moving in currently.

But the fault lies with me. I get too many ideas. I tend to falter with my priorities too often. 

For example, I am studying law, so I got kind of super hitched up on moot courts (which are a kind of mock-court events) two months back (It helps build your resume when you are studying law). Then suddenly my t-shirt business boomed. I got quite a big order by one corporate body and I kind of sold two-th…

I still remember somedays back, there was this huge rush over the shit called influenceerrrs. Everybody with a pretty face and a DSLR jumped the bandwagon.... fashion influencer, being the majority of the influencer hype, followed by travel. Guys with a little bit of social media followership started to call themselves social media influencers.

The No-Nonsense Guide To Being More Productive

I am gonna be clear. I am no productivity guru. Neither am I a billionaire or the first trillionaire who conquered it all through his sky-high productivity. I am just what you would call, a decently successful guy leading a happy life who reads a lot of self-improvement books such as The Productivity Project, The Happiness Equation, Deep Work, Tools of Titans etc.



In here, I am going to try and outline what it needs from your end to be more productive. What follows may appear conventional, may not be known to you or may just happen to blow your mind. I don't know.

This is what worked for me and some others whom I met who did what I did and became much more productive than what their lazy asses were.

ADHD, Meditation And Ritalin: How You Can Treat ADHD (My Story)

ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder

This article here, is intended for three main types of audience -

Those who suffer from ADHD or ADDThose who can't focus for long or have problems concentratingThose who want to boost their productivity, efficiency and efficacy.
The following what you are about to read is my personal anecdote. After it, I have added some recommended books based on the anecdote, which I think you may find useful.

I have had ADHD. I have had ADD. ADHD had been my longtime friend - since I was of the age of 6. My teachers were frustrated with my hyperactivity and recommended my mom to take me to a psychologist.

Fortunately she didn't recommend me any pills, and thanks to that, I didn't turn up like most other ADD-diagnosed guys.

I would like to say that ADD is deadly. It is also the most misdiagnosed disease that I have ever come across. It's also…

Productivity Strategies and Tactics (According to 60+ Experts): Become An Efficiency Monster!

Who doesn't want to finish a day's work before the day sets and to be free from all worries that the continuous failure to finish everyday's work brings!



Sadly, for most of us, that's just a dream. In fact instead of finishing a task before hand, we procrastinate and fail to finish the tasks within the time allotted to them. This kills our productivity and makes us stay up nights struggling to finish our work.

And that was my usual routine. Until about a year back. And that's when I started blogging. Having my exams just around the corner, whilst simultaneously churning out weekly content was a hell of an affair (Yes! I was that hard working then!) and I struggled like hell.

I had to stay up nights just to publish the posts that I promised myself I would publish. Anyways, after getting huge dark circles under my eyes, and my productivity falling greatly due to lack of sleep, I felt that it needed to change.

Brute-forcing myself to do tasks whilst having almost no contr…
