Consistency, not Quantity: The Key to Success in Voice Overs (and Everything Else)

In the world of voice overs, just like in any other pursuit, it's easy to get caught up in the idea that more is always better. More practice hours, more auditions, more gigs—it seems logical that the more time and effort you put in, the faster you'll reach success. However, the truth is a bit more nuanced than that.

While the number of hours you dedicate to your voice over business each week does matter to some extent, it's not the sole determinant of success. What truly sets apart the successful voice actors from the rest is consistency. Consistently showing up, putting in the work, and making progress day after day is what ultimately leads to success in this competitive industry.

Whether you have five hours a week or forty, the key is to make the most of the time you have and to use it consistently. It's far better to work five hours a week every single week than to cram in forty hours one week and then slack off for the next month.

Consider the analogy of the gym membership. Many of us have been guilty of signing up for an expensive gym membership with grand intentions of going every day and getting in shape. And for the first few weeks, we do just that—we hit the gym hard, feeling motivated and dedicated. But then life happens. Something comes up—a busy week at work, a family emergency, or simply a lack of motivation—and we miss a day. It's easy to let that one missed day turn into two, then three, until before we know it, a month has gone by and we haven't stepped foot in the gym.

The same principle applies to your voice over business. Consistency is key. It's better to spend a consistent amount of time each week honing your craft, submitting auditions, and networking, than to sporadically pour all your time and energy into it and then let it fall by the wayside.

Yes, with fewer hours, it may take longer to reach your goals, but the important thing is that you're making progress. Slow progress is still progress, and it's far better than no progress at all.

So, whether you have five hours or forty, commit to showing up and putting in the work consistently. Stay focused on your goals, stay disciplined with your time, and trust that your efforts will pay off in the long run. After all, in voice overs, as in life, consistency is the true secret to success.
