Episode #109 Break The Routine

Mondays don’t have to be mundane. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Casey Greenawalt revisit a frequent Three Words topic with fresh eyes.

Show Notes

You need to have a routine in order to break it.
Casey Greenawalt

Three Problems

  • We often lose sight of the ‘Why’ that inspires the ‘What’ of our day-to-day lives.
  • Even our greatest successes can feel monotonous when we merely do the same thing over and over again.
  • Some of the routines we have cultivated for years may not be as helpful as they once were.

Three Principles

  • Routines should not be rules, and we have the power to disrupt our schedules whenever we see fit.
  • A single week of a new routine may be all that we need to reinvigorate our traditional life rhythms.
  • Life is too short to go through the motions.

Three Practices

  • Experiment with your schedule by asking yourself, “How can I switch this up?”
  • Schedule periods of margin into your week in order to accommodate unexpected opportunities and interruptions.
  • Identify one scary change of routine that would take you one step closer toward achieving your most important goals.
