A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ruts are easy to come by and difficult to avoid.
Once encountered, they’re easy to stay in and tough to get out of.
Once evaded, they’re easy to find again and no easier to avoid than before.
There’s value in mixing things up just for the hell of it.
Change the route to work.
Change how I take coffee.
Change how many words my blog posts are.
Change the way I think of myself.
To be consistent over time puts a person at risk of inhabiting a world that gets smaller by the day.
That’s probably not a good thing.
Something happens in the human brain when we change something, even a little tweak. We experience something new. Maybe find a better way to think about something.
What can we change today?
