Routines Are Great... Until Something Disrupts It

Routines Are Great... Until Something Disrupts It

  • Routines are great.
  • Until something disrupts that routine, especially since the more rigidly you follow a routine, the more likely a single broken link will disrupt the entire chain.
  • How can you keep that from happening? The key (hat tip to Ryan Holiday for the concept) is to TURN A ROUTINE INTO A PRACTICE.

Routines Versus Practices

Routines Versus Practices

What's the difference in a routine and a practice?

  • Riding your Peloton every day at 5:45 a.m. is a routine; exercising every day is a practice.
  • Eating apple slices before you work out and oatmeal with blueberries afterward is a routine; eating healthy is a practice.
  • Holding an all-hands Zoom call every day at 1 p.m. is a routine; regularly checking in with employees to see if they need help or guidance or a quick word of encouragement is a practice.

Routines are what you do. Practices are also what you do, but are, more important, who you are.

The Difference Is In The Flexibility

The Difference Is In The Flexibility

  • Your bike breaks? If exercise is a practice, you'll spend those 45 minutes doing bodyweight exercises. Or a few HIIT workouts. Or going for a jog.
  • While the bike may have been your preferred option, you can still exercise.
  • The difference is in the flexibility.

RYAN HOLIDAY (ON ROUTINE VS PRACTICE)

The difference is in the flexibility.

One is about daily rhythm. The other is a lifelong pursuit. One can be ruined by something as simple as hitting the snooze button one too many times or getting called into work unexpectedly. The other can adapt accordingly.

One (a routine) is something you made up. The other (a practice) is something you do.

Focus On The Goal

Focus On The Goal

  • When something happens to mess up your routine, don't dwell on the "what." Think about the "why."
  • Focus on the goal your routine helps you achieve.
  • And then just achieve that goal, this time, in a different way.
  • Never lose sight of the fact that every element in a routine is goal-driven - if not, why is it part of your routine? - and there are a variety of different ways to achieve a goal. To eat healthy. To check in with employees. To monitor performance. To get customer feedback. To do almost anything.

Routines Are Not Who You Are

Routines Are Not Who You Are

  • No matter how important, no matter how regimented, no matter how carefully constructed, routines are not who you are.
  • Routines are simply what you do: what you choose to do.
  • A kink in your routine cannot change who you are - and, more important, who you hope to become.
  • Unless you let it.

CURATOR'S NOTE

A good reminder to not be obsessed with routine, and to stay focused on the big picture. Having activities that are part of our practices which eventuality lead to our big goals are a more wholesome, effective and productive way to live our days.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
