Reimagining Routines

We choose how to shape and give meaning to our lives. It seems simple enough. Make a choice each and every day to align with what matters. But it is not always that easy. How do you balance the short and the long-term priorities? How do you shift long-held routines that involve other people? We get into these questions and more as we discuss reimagining routines.

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing.” – Annie Dillard
