Today, I spent the morning browsing through my archive of daily thoughts.
With over 200 “lessons and #insights” recorded over 200 days, I found that surprisingly few of them had led to any meaningful shift in my being or behavior.
Like getting a stroke of #inspiration at a conference, insights alone are useless unless they get converted to routines, rituals, or habits that lead to long-term change.
We tend to look towards the future, searching for revolutionary new ideas, thoughts, and inspiration – but it might be more effective to upcycle old insights we already had but never acted upon.
After all, it’s easier to walk down a path you’ve already been on rather than forging a brand new one.
