We all have those days that we don’t feel like doing X or Y. However if it’s Tuesday and you normally run 5K on Tuesday, guess what you’re doing. That’s right you are going for a 5K run as that is what you normally do. The run gets you out of your funk and also helps you clear your head.
Sometimes routine saves you. It saves you from having to decide what to do. Steve Jobs notoriously wore the same outfit everyday, this was because he could save his cognitive energy for more important things than deciding what to wear. Routine allows you to be more creative because it cuts out so many monotonous decisions that you no longer have to make.
Productive routines are actually good for you and allow you to get more done and remain creative and productive. Gone are the days when it was thought that routines were limiting for you. So just remember that runners run, writer’s write and saver’s save. Those are all productive habits, we all have days where we don’t really feel like it but just continuing your productive habit with make you feel so much better.
Today I am thankful for my daily exercise and writing routines, my wife’s homemade chocolate chip cookies and calls that were made weeks ago that lead to some new business.
