Going through the motions is not always a bad thing.
We often think this mode of operation lacks authenticity or true desire- doing a thing just to get it done.
But what’s the alternative? Not going to dinner with your significant other, not doing the analysis for your company, not writing your blog post for the day?
Sometimes, we genuinely want nothing to do with these things.
Why are we so afraid of being inauthentic when our “authentic selves” so often want to be inconsistent? Routine is the tried and true gutter bumpers that keep our shots inbounds and moving forward. It is the only way we will be able to fight our base instinct to not.
