Life happens in seasons and cycles.
Arranging habits into routines is the best way to consistently do your best work… But every cycle of routinized work should eventually be broken.
Adventure restores your sense of curiosity. It exposes you to new ideas, people, and places. It allows you to take a step back from the day-to-day and consider whether you’re still happy with the direction of your work.
Taking a break to travel, hike, bike, play games, or simply be a tourist in your own city is powerful. The call of adventure is strong in you because we’re meant to explore.
Yes, set routines, but don’t let them keep you from restoring your sense of curiosity through adventure and exploration.
Thanks to Nicole Foo, my partner in crime in all of our travel and adventure in life, for the inspiration for today’s post.
