October was focused on the idea of Routine: what is it, how does it show up (or not show up) in your life, and when is it useful? From re-thinking what you spend your time thinking about, to parsing out time differently, to changing up your behaviors in an experimental fashion, it was a good month to focus on the habits that get us more of what we want. Read on to see a round-up of this month’s essays.
Here is a round-up of all the posts on this topic from the last month:
- Default to Finish: Co you let things slide, or do you finish them? There’s nothing quite as suffocating as letting an idea slowly die. How can you default to finishing behaviors?
- Eliminate the Thinking: Is everything worth thinking about equally?
- Change it Up: Consider your life as a series of experiments. Do you change up your patterns often enough?
- Don’t Use The Full Hour: The clock has wreaked enough havoc on our lives. It’s time to take back control of that minute hand.
- My Routine: A glimpse into what my present-day looks like, and where I began when thinking about this idea of “routine.”
Plus a few relevant posts from the archives:
- How to Behave When You Miss A Day: Does missing a day in your pattern trip you up?
- Have a Point of View: Having an opinion is an essential part of being able to make better decisions.
- The Creative Self: Why The Habit of Making Is Essential: Making things and shipping them is urgently a part of your creative life.
