Experimentation is just as necessary as routine—to see what you can get, what’s out there for you.
Routines are to our time what budgets are to our money. We adhere to them to spend our time wisely. But, while routines can provide us with a sense of control, especially during a pandemic and ensuing unpredictability, they can also grow to take up the valuable time that we need to experiment with and change things. As changing opportunities accelerate, we ought to be revising our routines a lot more. They’re certainly not meant to be set in stone, forever.
