Thoughts of the week

“Mix up”

original-3656939-2

How often do you have the same daily ritual?

How often do you take the same route for the same journey?

How often do you eat the same meal?

How often do you do the same workout?

Are these routines or habits? A habit is something you do in a regular and repeated way. It is a process that can occur subconsciously. A routine is something requires thought. It is made up of many habits. So, if you feel stuck in your habits, change your routine.

“If it’s moving too slow, go faster. If it’s not loud enough, turn it up. If the view is boring, go another way”

Reasons to keep things the same, to list a few:

  • Consistency
  • Reliability 
  • Security
  • Time
  • Education
  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Confidence 

Reason to mix things up, to list a few:

  • Challenge
  • Development
  • Adaptability
  • Character building
  • Variety 
  • Opportunity
  • Fun
  • Necessity

If you’re you happy with how you are performing in life, sport and/or business then great! if you’re not then it might be time to step back and look at things from a wider perspective. Making a change to just thing you do daily could have a ripple effect on many others for the greater. The only way you’re going to find this out is to go ahead and mix things up more…
