Right out of the gate, let me go ahead and admit as I write about recharging over a weekend I am actually sitting at work trying to tie up some end of sprint loose ends. You know what, though. I don’t mind. I am actually being productive on something I enjoy. So as you read this, don’t judge me! 😉
Routines, are hard. I know, I have just let the secret out of the bag haven’t I? Of course I haven’t! If routines weren’t hard we would all be way more productive and happy people. If you want to get down to it, morning routines, in my ever so humble opinion, are the hardest to implement and maintain.
Actually, having said all of that, is it really so hard to develop a routine, or is it truly just that we have habits that are hard to break. In theory, you come up with an idea of how you want a stretch of time to play out. If I had my druthers, I would wake up at 4:45am every morning, go to the gym, get cleaned up and ready to go for the day, spend some time reading and writing, then off to work. Easy enough. I mean nobody is holding me back.
