Many people overrate consistency... just as others lessen its importance.
The point is not to be able to avoid mistake or to force your opponent into making some. The idea is that you have to consider yourself with regard to the other player in order to make sense of your options. It's always what you can, given the context
and that context is, over an entire match, your opponent.
