Children aren’t the only people that benefit from routines. Adults need them too. Sometimes stress is soothed by a sense of control. When things feel out of control, the routine provides a reliable sense of accomplishment. It can keep the dreamer and the visionary grounded. Those words my sound the same, but I believe that they describe two different people. The dreamers thoughts aren’t necessarily tangible, whereas the visionary thoughts are more goal oriented. When neither can take solace in those thoughts, the routine provides an alternate comfort and balance. This week I’d like us to put humor aside for a moment and think about our own routines. Are they working? Do we need to make a few changes? Should we start over?

Love this reflection. I agree with you, dreamers and visionaries feel slightly different from each other from my point of view too. It feels like the second is an empowered version of the first one and routines are highly important for the transition. On top of buffering stress as you said!

I never thought of the visionary as an empowered dreamer. I agree that the visionary is an empowered version of the dreamer. There’s intent in doing something to make that dream come true. Sometimes that’s the hardest part. The dream provides comfort. Typically comfort doesn’t motivate people to travel the unbeaten path. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
