The routine is the enemy of time

Do you have a daily routine?

You get up at the same time every day? Do you eat the same breakfast and maybe walk to work in the same direction, taking the same streets and stopping off to get the same coffee order from the same coffee shop on the way? Likewise, when is that the last time you broke that routine? If you stepped out of it, how did it feel? Scary? A bit exciting, or maybe just a bit fresher than the norm?

Remember when we were kids. We were curious about everything around us. I have a 2 years old nephew he keeps on running around, bite things, pulling things, breaking them. He repeats everything he listens. This world is completely new for him to explore. When we don’t know things we carefully examine all tiny details. Our brain start making new connections. When we find something new we start learning everything about it. But once we learn, our brain stops thinking, things start happening automatically.  

“Once your brain establishes a routine it stops, the alertness goes away the fascination with how the world works..”  

― Jedidiah Jenkins

The routine becomes the monster in your life. The monster is what fears you from stepping out of your routine to undertake something different, to ascertain a different place, to find and be happy to find out about something new. The routine makes the days go by faster. One day it is a Monday, you wake up, get ready, do your everyday activities, only to go back to sleep at night. Then another day you rise up it is already Friday and you think that the week has gone by so fast, feeling so short. You feel that you have not tried anything new, because the routine has not let you. It keeps you in the bubble of being happy with what you already aware of and not wanting to learn new ideas and go on adventures. Create a routine of new and different adventures.

Step out of the bubble. Runaway from the monster. Break the routine. Allow yourself to be free and explore the world. If that means escaping your job or your family/friends for a while, do it. There are numerous opportunities out there within the world that involve you getting a future to sustain yourself but you’re limited to the time you’ve got. a day passes by in a moment and you’ll not revisit that day.

“Be spontaneous! Never be afraid to try new things or find new ways! Don’t let routine ruin your life!”
