A Lesson from Plants
In science experiments, we know that the controlled or constant variable is a variable that does not change. For example, in an experiment to test the effect of different lights on plants, other factors that already affect plant growth and health, such as soil quality and watering, those would need to remain constant. We look to things like this in our own lives... Both in personal and in business.. What quality factors do we need or have for optimal growth that we view as constant?
In our busy lives, having clear definitions of what our constants are (things that do not change) and qualities that define the level of growth we seek, is optimal to our growth.
Constants can look like a well defined schedule, a go to spot in our home, or an office space like COLAB . It can be that morning cup of coffee, or afternoon cup of tea, or the gallon(s) of water you're drinking every day. Constants can be boundaries, or a routine you put in place. Whatever you decide to have as your constants, be sure they are things that cannot be (too greatly) affected by outside or exterior things. Think of these constants as your foundational pillars to your growth. Around them, many things may change but your constants will help be your motivation and help keep you grounded and focused so you can continue to grow. Your constants will be the factors that stay the same ; that fuel you up so you grow and flourish, even in the midst of change.
We've created a worksheet for you so you can get clear on what those constants are:
