Do something different and surprise yourself out of your rut.

November 5, 2021

Do something different and surprise yourself out of your rut.

We all are pretty predictable in most things: brushing our teeth; toilet; morning routine; car we drive; equipment we use…on and on. And most of us can get pretty ridged and annoyed when something or someone makes us diverge from the “routine”.

What would you be willing to do differently if it created joy, new information and made you laugh out loud? I actually would give a lot for that experience. So I made the decision to get out of my rut, after I experienced serious annoyance over something simple, and decided to “un-rut” me.

Each year there is a bowl painting party in my town. The only reason I know is my daughter knows the gal that runs the program. They attract hundreds of people to participate and support their non-profit. I am not now, nor will I ever be a professional bowl painter. But I did it. Laughed at my lack of clever design thinking for the bowl and met some very terrific people who are now in my professional circle. Because I painted a bowl…badly. What do you need to do to get yourself out of defending your rut?

May I help?
