This Week…Routines


Where did the week go???  This week has been fairly normal, but interruptions throughout the week have made Saturday show up sooner than usual! 


When you have a system, you kind of get in a routine of what's important. And then you spend a lot more time on thinking of things that would make it 
better.Nick Saban

Don’t misunderstand, I’m not a stickler for a strict schedule but I’ve gotten into a daily routine that works for me. 


The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.
Mike Murdock

The interruptions weren’t earth-shattering or emergencies…primarily medical appointments, family chauffeur, out-of-town guests. 


What I do every day matters more than what I do once in a while.
Gretchen Rubin

These interruptions can be good for us.  With luck, they teach us to be flexible…to alter and adjust when we need to…and that Life Does Go On!


Mindset, habits, and routines are the building blocks for success toward your wellness goals.
Robyn Conely Downs

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hello Kathy - I think there is some insight to be gained from the quote by Gretchen Rubin.  Adapting and adjusting comes to mind.

Yep, this week was more of the same, only done in different ways. A different type of routine.

I think part of your weekend routine is watching college football when the season begins, am I right?  Have you seen that you and I will be rivals on November 15th?

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 I like going walking first thing in the morning. I'm more of a morning person and enjoy getting things done then.

Hi Kathy,
In retirement, I've found that routines are still useful. I don't have a jammed schedule, but I do have "something" on my calendar nearly every day of the week. Sometimes I have to "shift" the routine but it still gets done.

Same here Carol Williams I have something every day but it often gets changed up.

I do like a routine but they certainly get interrupted more times than not. Being flexible is the best way to deal when that happens. I try to make the best of it, and I really do believe that things tend to happen for a reason. Sometimes those interruptions can be a blessing.

I think you're right Sharon Tara it makes us more flexible!!  My interruption this week let me spend more time with Mini-me.

Kathy I also have kind of a routine each week, and when things come up that change it are OK as long as I know about them and have prepared for them.  BUT when my week is changed by surprises, I feel like I have not accomplished much.

You mentioned getting into a routine and even in retirement, I get it now, Kathy! My parents and grandparents used to say they couldn't do everything everyone wanted them to do and my retort was always, "Why, you're retired?! You can do whatever you want to do!"

While I'm not there yet, as I get closer to retirement, I can appreciate those who are there before me, have their routine, just as I do!
