Try Something New

I am a HUGE fan of routine. I have written about it on this blog and I often find myself in conversations with people about the importance of establishing a daily routine in order to create a more productive day. 

However, what do you do when your routine starts to work against you? You know what I mean. There are things that you have programmed into your day that you start avoiding. These are things that you are responsible for that seem more overwhelming than anything. That part of your routine makes you feel like your in a trap. If you could, you would simply remove that part of your day altogether.
