What I’m thinking about
Despite not sticking as rigidly as usual to my protocols, in someway not having the “pressure” of sticking to certain routines, allowed for a somewhat more spontaneous week in which my wife and I hosted a lunch for the first time ever!
Alongside perhaps the more obvious feelings that accompanied this sense of stepping further into adulthood, it was extremely interesting to see, for the first time in a long-time, the value of physical human interaction and community which is often referred to as a pillar central to human experience.
No doubt I’m still a big believer in the correlation between structure, protocols and peak performance, but lately I’ve been settling on the need for some “wiggle-room” in life to just either:
- a) Do ‘nothing’.
- b) Think deeply about ideas, problems, ideas etc.
- c) Try new things (i.e hosting a dinner or lunch party with new people)
Try breaking your usual routine this week and see what happens, you might surprise yourself. If you don’t like it you always have your routines and habits to fall-back on.
