Making it routine
Saturday, May 18, 2019
Being a spontaneous person and one not inclined towards habits or routine, setting a program to follow is hard. Other than showing up places I’m expected to be, there has never been much of a routine in my life. Understandably I keep forgetting about the schedule I’m supposed to be following. But I do like plans and order enough to allow that side of my personality to take over.
It all works best when I go into robot mode. To just get out of bed and get to the equipment or come home from work and prep food without considering all the other things I need to do let’s me focus on me. Then there’s the satisfaction of achieving another step forward. For me it’s all mental work of overcoming all the dozens of ideas that pull me in many directions. I still fight it and struggle but I am always looking for ways to keep me on this track.
