Stability and surprise

2020-01-03

There’s something to be said for stability, predictability and security.

Of course, there’s also something to be said for variety, novelty and surprise.

Both can be bad when taken to extremes. But we can’t really do without either of them.

I think most people struggle with the element of surprise more than the element of stability. It’s easy now to be comfortable with the way things are and just not want to change them.

And that’s fine. Just remember that surprise is important too. Switch things up sometimes - it’s good for you.
