Conversations with Ingvar "Routine kills!?"
There is usually a negative connotation to routine. It is dull and monotonous, a repetition that lacks novelty.
Day after day, the same activities, the same places, the same faces... Work routine, study routine, everyday routine, marriage routine, life routine… We are told that work does not have to be fun; It is claimed that marriage is something you must constantly work on; And that a life of constant routine is your inevitable reality – you pay the bills, take care of your family, and there is no time for anything else. Are your activities the same, day in and day out, in the same environment? Do you feel stuck in a routine, slowly degenerating?
People usually fight their routine and attempt to find something new or extreme. Sometimes a routine can totally take over and turn people into the slaves of the routine. This is already an addiction. The addict hardly remembers how often s/he raised the glass and from what moment on the routine (i.e. ritual of drinking cognac) became an addiction. However, some routines are thought to be good – they provide a certain rhythm, a plan for life, and ensure confidence. Some routines that have to do with a lot of practice, help one to become masterful. Let’s take musicians or painters, who polish their performance day by day to reach perfection. Routine occurs in every walk of life and at every age. Most people can also find such routines in their lives, that are difficult to break and overcome. Psychologists have done a tremendous amount of research, tests, and invented ways to determine a person’s resilience to routine and then teach how to break that routine.
What if you lived routine-free? Would that automatically mean chaos? What is routine, anyway? Why do we struggle with it? How to end routine? When is routine beneficial and when does it become our enemy? Does routine foster creativity or instead kill it? How to transform regular routine into a driving force? Ingvar Villido opens up a new and innovative perspective on the topic of routine.
