When we first set out to do something, we have very little idea of what we’re going to do, and how we’re going to do it. But we believe in our own potential, so we decide to get started. In the beginning, it helps to set up a strategy or routine that is mechanical in nature, to ensure that we are following through on the things that need to get done. Then, at some future point, once we learn a little more about the environment and ourselves, we can loosen up the reigns a little bit and become more discretionary with our actions. The idea is to set up rules to keep us moving forward, and then once we’re able, we can unlearn those rigid rules and become more fluent and effective.
