“Nothing is wonderful when you get used to it." - Edgar Watson Howe
Autopilot kicks in when we allow what was once exciting and challenging to become boring or mundane. Because of familiarity, we tend to miss opportunities and fail to perform at our best.
A bomb could go through without being notice by the security official if they would look at the screen for a long duration. That is why security officials at the airport rotate their roles.
We need to aware the moment we are in autopilot because it is unhelpful when
- We want to do something better than we did it last time or
- There might be a better way of doing something that we are used to doing in the same way.
If you are experiencing autopilot in your life, it maybe time to look with fresh eyes. Do you agree?
- Frequent Self check is necessary
- Don't fail to try new things!
- Have you free yourself?
- Raise your standards
- Be Innovative
- Renew your mind
