But what happens when our rituals take over, when we become too immersed in habits and routine?
So maybe we need the right amount of ritual: routines that help bond our teams (heading to the pub after work), rituals that make us efficient (keeping the teabags in the same place!), but maybe we need to challenge or change some of the other routine that surrounds us. Maybe move desks, change the view, change your style, change your habits.
Introducing some disturbance, some difference, can lead to short term thinking: how do i do things now, and some long term gains. Rituals are good, but not something to hide behind.
What have you got into the habit of doing that you could change? What could you learn to do differently?
