The Art Of Routine

Routine is the foundation for many things in life. “The myth is that artists are somehow different. That they leap from one peak of inspiration to another. That they reject limits – that this is precisely what makes them artists. But of course that’s not true. Most artists work as the rest of us do, incrementally, day by day, according to their own habits. That most art does not rise above the level of routine has nothing necessarily to do with the value of having a ritual.”
