When life fails to make sense eat breakfast
It is an unfortunately common result that if one part of our lives fails to make sense it cascades into the remaining parts. This often results in a breakdown of what otherwise would be a standard event. Even to the point of forgetting your coffee in the morning (tea for some of us).
This amazing cascading effect of one area of frustration into all the rest, is very often the cause of many a bad day. But if you want to prevent this on days when life fails to make sense, eat breakfast. What I mean is this, do what you normally do. Keep your routines that provide normalcy in your day. Events that through off our thoughts tend to destroy our normal daily occurrences, they provide a distraction to our thoughts and activities. Our normal activities provide anchors throughout our day that keep us on track.
Now there are indeed schools of thought that advise shaking up your day to create moments of inspiration to overcome blocks in our thinking. I am not against these days in the least, in fact they can be very beneficial, (or so I have heard), I am not much on going off the beaten path.
Lately each of us has been experiencing more than one day that has been modified, and which perhaps has provided an occasion for us to feel that life fails to make sense. These moments can, as I said, lead to days that fail to go well. So do what is normal. Eat breakfast. Have a cup of hot coffee or tea. These moments of normal will help you address the strange and provide a better frame of mind to propose solutions or when necessary simply overcome the anxiety that arrives with the sense of strange.
If you are in leadership you have had to modify your approach multiple times lately. Each of these changes has created discord in anyone who avoids change. For those who enjoy change these last few months have been a blast, for the rest of us not as much. Keeping some routine reduces the sense of change and provides opportunity to think clearly.
So, when life fails to make sense eat breakfast, gain your bearings, and do awesome.
