That pivotal moment… do i work out? Do I work? Do I immerse myself in whatever bad news is coming out of Washington? Do I go back to sleep? Do I sit quietly in a room with my thoughts for the day? Am I doing that now?
Routine saves me from all of those choices. Routine also saves me from spontaneity. Routine is the double edged sword of creativity.
I think I have to schedule in some spontaneity. Because he who dies by the sword gets to live by the sword!
