Model: balance consistency and intensity

Model: balance consistency and intensity

Metaphor: brushing your teeth

if you stop brushing your teeth

and only go to the dentist once a year


What does brushing your teeth for 2 minutes do?

It does nothing.

Unless you do it every single day


Metaphor: gym

you cannot go to the gym for 9 hours and get into shape


but if you work out every single day for 20 minutes

you'll absolutely get into shape


I just don't know when


companies like intensity because it's easy to measure


too many companies think they can solve a problem with intensity

I challenge them to consider the consistency stuff
