If you constantly change your to-do app, route to work or line at the supermarket, you probably know that at some point you're just spinning your wheels. Have an end goal in mind whenever you make a change to ensure progress.

It's good to make changes in different areas of your life. Maybe you're getting out of a rut, or your comfort zone. Just be sure that when you change, you have a clear objective in mind, otherwise the changes you make could be unnecessary.
Time Management Ninja explains:
If you are constantly changing your time management tools, routines, and habits, you can prevent yourself from ever reaching a steady efficient state.
This concept not only applies to individuals, but also to businesses. They mistake change for improvement, and that is not always the case.
"Change for change sake does not always result in progress."
And while I am a big advocate of leaving your comfort zone, too much change can result in confusion, disorganisation and lack of competence.
So, next time you want to make a change, ask yourself why you're doing it first.
