“The pleasure of doing a thing in the same way at the same time every day and savoring it should be noted.”
Arnold Bennett, English writer

Loyal readers of The Quotable Coach will know that coaching often has a lot to do with breaking patterns so that new worlds will emerge. (See my recent audio post for more on this: https://www.thequotablecoach.com/coaching-2/patterns-change-time-audio.)
Bennett’s quote has an appeal in that doing the same thing over and over again the same way at the same time each day can have considerable merits. A daily rhythm of behaviors to provide consistency, stability and a general foundation for the rest of our diverse and wildly varied lives can be compared to a strong building’s foundation or a tree’s root system and trunk.
