Are you in a groove or in a rut? In this episode I share how we can get stuck in a groove because we never examine WHY we do things in a familiar way. I refer to a book I’m reading, “Create the Future, Tactics for Disruptive Thinking,” by Jeremy Gutsche.We are in the biggest pattern interrupt in modern history, outside of possibly WWII. Can you think of a time where more major parts of society were challenged like they are now?Because we’re being forced to make changes, it’s worth considering if you want to return to old familiar patterns.Episode Highlights0:20 Something different in today’s episode1:15 This episode is perfect for you if you’re “in a routine”2:40 We’re in a time of unprecedented change4:00 Good reasons why we systemize certain things6:00 Being in a groove can also be a good thing6:50 The two big things in my week that happened at the same time7:50 We’re more dependent on past decisions than we’d like to think8:30 As Joe Dispenza observes, our lives are largely based on past decisions9:40 Why the space shuttle design was based on ancient Roman times14:40 We’re way more dependent on past decisions than we think15:34 Why I changed my podcast after 25 shows16:27 The email that made me reconsider where I might want to live18:40 The two things that caused me to reevaluate what choices I make in life.19:40 Start with small changes20:33 Challenge this week: are there things you can do to vary up your routine?23:00 My process for developing a compelling vision for three years from nowMore On ThorWebsite: thorchallgren.comOn Instagram: @thorchallgrenOn Facebook: Facebook.com/coursechangepodcast
