We all have an affinity with repetition and habit, often when there’s no good reason for it. It’s just familiarity, our comfort zone. Like all of us, you probably have a few routines or set ways into which you’ve slipped without even noticing. You have all kinds of automatic behaviours, personal preferences and routines that you probably aren’t even aware of – everybody has. Because that’s what habits are – action without thought.
This week we’re going to turn the spotlight onto your own personal habits. We’re going to help you gain some self-insight and identify some of these. Bring them out into the open and hold them up to scrutiny. Then, each day, you’re going to try something a bit different. Something that’s just outside your comfort zone and will expand you as a person. If that sounds a bit scary, remember it’s natural to feel that way.
By following the Do Something Different programme, you will not only seek out new experiences but you’ll also expand your behavioural flexibility. This makes you more open to fresh opportunities that were hidden behind your old, one-dimensional approach, perhaps opening doors that you’d never even noticed before.
