In reality, our lives are usually not changed by major moments. The biggest changes happen over time. It happens with every decision we make on a daily basis. We are made up of the tiny decisions we make in every moment.
One of the most important benefits of a daily routine is the sense of rhythm that you gain from it. Beyond the habits and efficiencies, there is a feeling of momentum that is hard to stop. The longer and faster you go, the better it feels.
