I got my parking space back today.
A snow bank had been occupying it. But with spring here, the space returns to its rightful owner.
With my space back, my day has improved dramatically. I have been more productive – I’m even writing my first post in weeks. Why?
There is only so much energy we get in a day. Energy spent looking for a parking space can’t be used on business ideas or writing.
For the past few weeks, I used precious mental energy to circle the lot for a space. Now, I just pull into the same place – no thought required.
Sure, it’s a pretty small news item, but it showed me the power of routine in boosting productivity. The more routine you can make your morning chores, the more mental energy you will have to be creative later in the day.
