When we have routine we are content. We are focussed to perform and get things done well. Really? Or, are we not in a rut?
Like the hamster that runs around and around and up and down on a structured route, because that is what he does. If you are out of routine you tend to lose track of time, and whats normal and then panic sets in. Why?
Shouldn’t we just do this, step out, pause; then along the way, look at the whole picture; see the scene from a different angle, get fresh ideas and find new ways of working. You may say that you enjoyed the old routine track too! but was it not ever all becoming like ‘one foot in front of the other?’
When you drop routine for a few days- you feel free- you become a calmer person. Priorities change.
You are easier to reason with and you blood preasure drops!
Do that task because you want to, not because you need to; it’s so much more fun!
Now ‘FUN’ thats another thing, hardly ever included in routine.
My change in routine happened because of our circumstanes and neccesity but I am loving it now. At first I had to blame someone and it was easy to metre that out. Why me? Why now!!
Now it is my choice, enjoyment is inevitable. Routine happens within my choice. Enjoy work, I do!
What can you do to reduce routine?
