A Routine To Break Routine

For about 2 months now, I’ve been going through the motions. The motions of wake up, put positive energy in me, workout, go to work, come home, eat, make the most of my time, sleep and repeat. There was a point where I had my schedule down to the hours of what I would do or take time for. To be honest, I don’t like that much structure and routine, but it appears that routine is what makes many people successful.

I don’t mind having core tasks to complete but to have my entire 24 hours planned out is just not appealing to me. Even without that I have fallen into quite a routine and well, it’s getting boring.

I don’t have the same focus I had just last month and no where near the same as 4-6 months ago. I haven’t dreaded doing anything, it’s just not as fun or inspiring to my goals as it used to be. I have a plan to change that.

I’m going to break my routine, by routinely creating changes. I’m going to either make the most of my time to do something “different” or I’m going to create time that throws my routine off, forcing me to do something different. I may take a lunch every week or 2 days out of a week. I may take a half day or a full day off. Maybe I’ll check out a new restaurant or go have a drink at a bar. The enticing factor of it all is that I truly don’t know and I’ll have to figure it out as I go.

The ultimate goal is to not be beaten down or deflated by my daily routine. Adding a little spice, flavor and uncertainty seems like a great way to do that. No better time than now to make it happen.
