Now that most of us are at home, trying to work, learn, or survive, we need to protect ourselves from ruts. It is easy to fall into a rut without even realizing what is happening. Getting out of a rut is difficult.
The best way to avoid a rut is to mix things up. If you are a Gamer or a TV addict, try turning off the electronics and read a book for a while. If you are a bookworm, play a game or watch some television.
Doing different things helps us to stay fresh and helps us to avoid ruts. Even the things we love can get old after a while. We need to ensure we are finding new challenges and new alternatives as we make this journey in our lives.
We are all travelers to a new destination. The trip is akin to astronauts traveling to a new planet. And like space travelers who count on their spaceships, our safety is in our homes. And like those travelers, we are both moving to a new world that may seem familiar yet will have unique needs and requirements.
We do not know what demands we can expect from the future. I believe we will need our wits about us to navigate certain pitfalls and new ruts. To be ready, we need to keep our minds sharp now. To stay sharp, I recommend knowing what is going on, staying in touch, and, most of all, staying out of the ruts.
Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again soon.
