Most people are afraid of having a routine and I honestly must say that I’ve been raised with the idea that a routine is bad for me. But my parents and friends never told me why a routine is so bad so I had to figure that out by myself.
Actually, a routine is not bad, but its structure can be bad. I think that people who claim having a routine is bad, don’t have a great structure in place. A great routine needs to allow you to be productive, have fun, spend time with your loved ones and be fulfilled at the end of the day. This seems almost impossible because our mind might not be ready to accept “commands”.
Negotiate with yourself
The most important aspect for having a satisfying routine in place is to negotiate with yourself so you make sure you do the things you have in your schedule. We all have things we have to do, but not all of us do those things because deep down we don’t really want to so we’ll do whatever it takes to procrastinate a little. Procrastination feels good even though it comes with some flavor of guilt.
Maybe some yelling from Eric Thomas will be more convincing than my ideas, so hear him out!
How do you plan your upcoming day?
