“Reorder your routines. Shatter your structure. Humiliate your habits. In other words, do a different day today!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
I love my mornings, and since the pool closed last fall, I’m up, with my coffee, working on my morning quote.
This morning, I went for a swim first! I enjoyed the morning sky, watched the birds position themselves for the days activities, and worked on today’s quote while doing so!
It’s May 1, the pool is open, and summer seems to be approaching. And so my routine has changed. Rather than working on my quote with my coffee, I was working on my quote in the pool. Sometimes making the smallest change is the pathway to a significant new reality.
Habits, routine and structure are the enemies of innovation. We get locked into patterns that has us doing today what we did yesterday. Every once in a while it is good to break them up, and focus on the differences, not the sameness.
