It can be a good thing

Posted: July 29, 2014 in Uncategorized

If you live in the northern hemisphere of the earth it is nearing the end of the summer season. With the end of summer for most of us comes the end of vacation time. Schedules at home and at work will begin to change and get back to “normal”, or back on track.

Breaking from our routines is a good thing to do. Breaking from our routines gives us time to unwind and reflect, but routines get stuff done. With routines full of good habits schedules can be set and we can be seen as reliable. It was the prompt service and good scheduling that made train travel the harbinger of progress in the west and all across the continental United States of America. It is keeping to schedules that makes companies agile and capable.

Routines can be boring but they are needed. Routines full of good habits and needed actions are good things.  It is through routine of good things that we achieve the great things.

The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.

Now, routines made up of dull not needed things can be tortuous and deferential to things like our health and happiness.  Do your self a favor and develop a new routine full of good and healthy habits. Let our loved ones know routinely how special they are. Keep a journal. Run or swim or anything to get active. Learn something new everyday. Keep track of your goals. Make your life through your routine be this awesome force, but remember to figure in time to relax and reflect (you are not all work all the time)

“I am wary of the whole dreary deadening structured mess that we have built into such a glittering top-heavy structure that there is nothing left to see but the glitter, and the brute routines of maintaining it.”
John D. MacDonald, The Deep Blue Good-By

“I want to caution you against the idea that balance has to be a routine that looks the same week in and week out.”
Kevin Thoman
