Your routine, your future

One of my professional backgrounds is that of skincare and amongst the many things you are exposed to , the fundamental principle in skincare would be routine.

It doesn’t matter as much the range or cost of skincare you use as it does the regularity of its usage. Often times, people tend to go for the very expensive range , sometimes due to the power of advertising and though the range itself may be very good, they use it like a magic formula, a few usage over a few days and then give up, when they don’t see immediate results and quickly move on to the next best thing. There are others on the other hand who do not believe in the products out there and do not think they need any special care or attention for their skin and it doesn’t matter what they believe or don’t believe, their skin show results of Little or no care.

In other words, a routine or lack of it shows, whichever way.

The word routine according to the Oxford languages dictionary is : a sequence of actions regularly followed. A routine is “performed as part of a regular procedure rather than for a special reason.”

Another definition of routine according to dictionary.Com is : a customary or regular course of procedure. commonplace tasks, chores, or duties as must be done regularly or at specified intervals; typical or everyday activity: the routine of an office. regular, unvarying, habitual, unimaginative, or rote procedure.

If you stop to observe your routine long enough, you will be able to tell your future, and I am not talking about spooky predictions but a clear indication of your pathway, whether to success, failure or mediocrity.

Almost everything in life requires a routine, be it living the Christian life, excelling in your business or trade, achieving a goal or dream, or anything else for that matter. You need a “customary or regular course of procedure,” not a wave of spontaneity. Being spontaneous is great, of course, but it has its time and place. Doing the mundane, repeatedly, however, helps to build and establish.

God said to Joshua, in order to prosper and be successful, you need to read and meditate on ‘The book’ , day and night, that is a routine.

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall read [and meditate on] it day and night, so that you may be careful to do [everything] in accordance with all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will be successful.”
Joshua 1: 8 AMP

When you read the bible, you get information, when you meditate on that information, you get revelation which when applied, produces results and this is something done not as a one off but as a lifestyle. Living a life of spontaneity, however, will be likened to ‘game catchers’. They can be witty and adventurous and do come into opportunities from time to time, but what happens with those opportunities over a long period of time is what raises questions.

Do you jump from project to project without taking enough time to build one? Without establishing a routine long enough to lead you to success? Proverbs 12:27 says
Lazy people don’t even cook the game they catch, but the diligent make use of everything they find.

Interestingly, lazy people are not described as people who sit down and do nothing( as we often think ) but people who get ideas but are not patient enough to work on those ideas to produce results, they are game catchers, idea generators, thinkers, but do not follow through.

Catching the game is great, but the process of cooking it, that takes patience, hard work, commitment, consistency, time, and effort but ultimately produces lasting results.
There is no success in life without a routine and a life of routine is a life of discipline, a discipline which you may get weary of at some point ,but you keep on going because of the understanding of its benefits, the benefit of Success and fruitfulness.

Much Blessings
