167- Novelty without Commitment

I have an addiction to novelty without commitment.

Something about finding myself in a new and unfamiliar situation makes me come alive in a way that routine and repetition don’t.

The need to adapt rapidly to a new set of inputs and variables feels like a shortcut to presence and mindfulness, and the randomness I encounter helps me build a broad spectrum of new knowledge.

However, novelty without commitment to a field of interest can quickly become a distraction.

Mastery and expertise require repetition. Only by ensuring that novel experiences consistently overlap themselves around a central theme can we benefit from its potential.
