I am reading this book by John Maxwell “The 17 essential Qualities of a Team Player” for my grad class and one of his qualities in the book is Consistency but what he really describes is Integrity. I thought it interesting to see the same correlation in your blog.

Nice read. (Your post, not the book I am reading)
