The Value in Routine

"Did I do that?"  "I need to remember to do this."  "Oh I forgot that!"

We have all said these words at some point and there is inevitably a feeling of disappointment associated with it – disappointment from others as well as ourselves.  Everyone wants a "Get out of Jail Free" card or a cheat code to make it all better.  I have one for you – routine!

Although routines are usually perceived as boring there is great value in routine.  Essentially routine is planning.  Many aspects of our lives are already part of our routine; taking out the trash, paying bills, even showering.  These and other items require planning and since they happen repeatedly, they are routine.

The more frequently you perform a routine, the less you will have to do.  Sorting a month's worth of paper takes four times as long as sorting weekly.  It is a simple technique that if used consistently, will give you excellent results.

It may sound boring yet there are few things more liberating than a good routine.  It means you are now free to spend your time and energy doing the things you really want to do.  Taking time today makes time for tomorrow.
