Are You a Creature of Habit or do you like change?

  2. I like to change the way I do things, as long as it is not inefficient

    I was wondering what percentage of people are creatures of habit. Now I don't know if this is the true meaning of that saying, but what I am talking about is feeling more comfortable doing something the same way each time. As example, I feel I am a creature of habit and if possible will always park in the same parking space at work or church. I also will always sit in the same general area at church each Sunday and other things like that.

    Both, brother. I love adventure ... but I must admit that I like routine for my day to day chores.

    I have a routine that I like, but I've also got a spontaneous side to me... though the older I get the more my spontaneity leads me to my bed to take a nap :) as opposed to going on some adventure or other.

    Us OCD folks like all our ducks in a row - the SAME row every day.

    I don't like to be bored so I like to shake thing up from time to time. However, I'm all about efficiency. :nod

    Do you hang your blouses according to color? And how about drawer dividers? And SYMMETRY——
    oh my goodness- it can be maddening.
    But I have “graduated” when going places, and make a turn that isn’t on the GPS, and let Google give me an alternate route. YEAH - one rut I can avoid.

    I'm now of an age where choosing to nap on my back vs. my side is the most adventure I can handle.:sad

    While I love having a routine for my life, I have always been one to say, "I don't want to get stuck in a rut!"
    Consequently, I've knocked myself out for years finding new things to do, new places to go, and new ways to entertain friends and family. Now that I'm older, am widowed, and my body is giving me grief.......... it is harder and harder to make myself get out there and stay active like I used to do. BUT...... I'm determined to keep "stirring the pot" to keep life interesting, only on a bit smaller scale.
