Why do most artists fear the idea of being consistent in daily tasks.

Lately, I've been thinking about the word consistency and what it means in everything we do. As artists we tend to not pay attention to a word like this, since it would mean that we would be locked into a system or encapsulated into a time-frame - and that scares us! I believe that we have it wrong. Based on my experience as a full time artist for the past 5 years; I believe that consistency is our best friend. You see, I believe that we're afraid of this because we want to be free and as artists this is what we strive for. However, without consistency of any kind we will not trully get that freedom we so much seek.
