We’re great at categorising things.
It’s how we stay organised. It makes us feel productive.
When we categorised tasks, our natural instinct is to give them an order or a sequence.
But sometimes the rules we make up stop making sense.
Sometimes our orders limit us.
“I’m going to do the dishes then mop the floor.”
Is different to,
“I have to do the dishes before mopping the floor.”
Sometimes the floor just has to be mopped.
Be careful of pigeon holes, especially those you make yourself.
Only a fool ends up washing dishes while standing in broken glass.
