Patterns and learning

I see two consistent patterns –

(1) A Friday with large chunks blocked for thinking and taking stock almost always result in a very positive end to the week.

(2) A Sunday that ends without a last minute sprint to finish chores almost always results in a great start to the next.

Despite knowing this, I don’t consistently implement this. On some days, it is because of things outside my circle of influence. But, more often than not, it is simply because of the difference between being aware of something and learning it.

Awareness is an important first step on the road to learning.

But to learn and not to do is not to learn.
