Routines are important and powerful. They allow us to save time by not having to make decisions. We all have routines, but few of us actually choose our routines. We just seem to fall into them, and we keep our routines unless they’re obviously failing. Your current routines might be okay, but are they bringing you closer to your goals? Do they support your values and priorities? Even a small alteration in a routine can make a big difference because they’re performed consistently. Over time, these actions add up.
