A game like chess or soccer has a lot of rules. But you can't play it the same way twice. And you can't plan what each player is going to do ahead of time. It kills the game.
It will kill your art too. Valuing consistency is sham institutional piety. It places the need to please those with financial power over you at the center.
Does consistency count for something? Sure. Showing up. Your health. General common sense and decency and respect. That's about it.
But there is no room for obedience once you're in the ring.
Anyone who tries to tell you this is the way things must be can shove it. Don't tell them that though. Your job is to say thank you very much, and go your own way anyway.
The penguins are just mad at you because they know they can't fly.
