Be a Person of Honor

The Cost of Habit and Routine


Habit and routine have an unbelievable power to waste and destroy.
- Henri de Lubac

Life is defined more by its risks than by its samenesses.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

to wait for the train of the future to run over him.

Beware of monotony; it's the mother of all the deadly sins.
- Edith Wharton

Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
