Our roles and habits stick with us. We repeat them because we know them so well. They have carved grooves in our brain and with each repetition the groove becomes deeper.
They turn into such deep canyons that we can’t see or imagine any other neural networks.
That’s why it’s harder to leave your job after 15 years than after 15 months.
We remain right at the bottom of the canyon, deprived of light and sun, seeing nothing but the same pathway day after day. No room for creativity or doing anything on a whim.
To climb up the sides, we need training, stimulation and maybe also a team of trainers and a mental coach. If top-level sports players seek support to help them achieve their peak performance, why shouldn’t we do the same?
