I asked my girls in our private group last night what they think is the benefit of having structure as well as freedom.
The general consensus seemed to be that structure allows for freedom and in itself Is freeing.
I proposed that when you have freedom to think and create and work and enjoy life because you’ve established a structure that allows you to, then you’re really doing it right.
You can’t deny that people are creatures of habit, you and I…we thrive on structure (not to be confused with oppression, the mundane, or the same ol same ol) and need it to be efficient!
I shared that if you do not create your own structure, it WILL BE CREATED FOR YOU (news, social media, TV, commute, work, react to what’s happening, repeat… sucked into the now versus present for it).
Imagine taking two people, both want to run a business, one has a routine, one does not, both have the same tasks that need to be carried out…who do you think will actually get it done?
One of my members of the on demand platform said it well too, that structure serves us day to day in getting things done but freedom provides us that mental clarity and peace we need.
So true, I think that is what allows us to keep going!
You must create a structured routine that works for YOU. Not based on what someone else said or does, but based on your needs and how you want to live your life.
I have found that when I do not follow a structured plan, I fall into negative energy or habits that drag me down.
Structure doesn’t have to equal boring though! Be sure that freeing, fun, fulfilling, and life giving things are PART of your routine so you’re not craving it by the end of the day or week and seeking it elsewhere.
What do you think? Would love to hear your thoughts!
