Rut or Groove?
Ask yourself, “Is it a groove or a rut?” Then take steps to get out of a rut and into the groove. Habits can facilitate success, by consolidating an accumulation of effort, ensuring consistency, and getting you into the zone faster. Habits can be barriers to success, if you end up searching the same ground and coming up with the same answers again and again. To keep things fresh, make it a habit to try something new. What’s the best way to get started? List your habits and systematically challenge them. Instead of challenging them all at once, identify areas you think are most likely to be fruitful and concentrate on them one at a time. Really give it a go; don’t back off to quickly or easily. If you do, you’ll find either confirmation or make a breakthrough.
