Alex Becker, a marketing strategist, and a writer, has a lot to teach us about how we can “be more aware” of the way we think and act. I know that this is a lot to take in, but he’s right in saying that in a lot of ways, we are still living with the same autopilot.
A lot of the things we do without even realizing it are the things that lead to our downfall. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions control us, and we can often be so used to one thing or even one person that we don’t ask ourselves, “Why am I doing this?” We don’t think about it.
There is a lot of research that shows that our autopilot habits and routines actually have a negative impact on our well-being. For example, I read this article in Entrepreneur.com and I had to stop and think about it. It says our habits are a “brain-dead way of thinking.” We have to stop and think about what we are doing.
That’s right. We are so used to routines, impulses, and reactions that we cannot see the forest for the trees. A study from the University of Texas conducted by researchers Dr. Michael McCullough and Dr. Stephen Nisbet looked at the relationship between routines, impulses, and reactions. According to their research, the more a person used to routines, impulses, and reactions, the less he or she found enjoyment in his or her life.
This is why we use Google. We have too many of those things in our lives that we don’t even realize we have.
The study also showed that people who used to routines and impulses and reactions found life more stimulating and fulfilling because it didn’t seem to be filled with “the usual” things. They were also more likely to enjoy their lives more and to be more creative in their daily life. I think this is why people are so willing to share their life experiences.
I think I have to break this down a little. A routine is something that we do over and over again, but it becomes boring eventually because we get tired of doing it. A routine is a series of actions that are performed for a certain time in the future. This is usually done for a long and sometimes permanent period of time. A routine may be the same routine that we do every day, or it may be the same routine that we do for a different time in the future.
If a routine is the same routine that we do every day, then it’s boring to change it. If a routine is the same routine that we do for a different time in the future, then it’s boring to change it. That’s why you should always try to make sure that your routines are the same. The best thing about this idea is that once you do it, it is so easy to change it. You just need to take a fresh look at your routine.
You can change your routine anytime. It might be the same routine you did yesterday, but the next time you go to bed it is different. It might be the same routine you did yesterday, but the next time you wake up it is different. You never forget that.
It’s good to always be aware of how your routine works, but it’s also important to be aware of your routines. If you wake up and go to bed every morning at the same time, you will only have yourself to blame if you don’t do it. If you never sleep in the middle of the night, you will be too tired to get much done in the day.
