Sometimes agendas and itineraries are important.
Structured, punctual, and organized. Knowing where we are headed and what we are doing. It becomes necessary in our life, at times.
But so does discovery and veering off course. So does spontaneously making a decision and living with the consequences. We can’t script every aspect of our lives.
Routines and calendars and schedules can box us into a corner. They can limit us to explore the far edges we haven’t considered. We can become frustrated.
We haven’t figured it all out yet. We still have room left to explore.
Let’s not give up on reaching outside our comfort zones.
That’s how innovation happens.
It’s where new ideas form.
It’s where we find new life.
Sometimes it’s necessary to calculate every minute but it can be just as important to wander off the path with no sense of time or direction, as well.
We need to give ourselves both.
It’ll give balance to our complex and uncertain lives.
