Consistency works, but it's extremely unpleasant. You're constantly fighting yourself. If you want it to last, trade consistency for intensity. Do a lot when inspiration strikes, and take long breaks in between. It might not be as effective, but who cares?! It's more enjoyable.

Conserving energy is a natural part of making progress. When the circumstances demand rest, rest. When inspiration strikes, strike. I've been productive via "intensity over consistency" for many years, and if you can do it, I highly recommend trying it.
