Albert Einstein famously said that the definition of insanity was doing the same thing time and time again but expecting different results.He may well have been referring to scientific experiments but then again, Einstein also had a lot to say about life. I do know that Edison took over one thousand attempts to make the light bulb. I’m sure though that each?experiment?was different to the last.
How often have we set a goal or just decided to do something different, only to fall back into old habits? Today I found myself checking my various e-mail accounts three times each despite promising myself to stick to once per day. If I stay to once per day I can get so much more done from my ‘important to get done’ list.
I’m going to stick to it tomorrow. It will be hard but after repition, things become far easier. The hardest thing to do is break the pattern in the first place.
