habit v. rut

If you get up everyday and do the same thing, is it habit? Are you in a rut? Is there a way to decide?

Certainly you can find yourself locked into one way of doing things. Maybe that closes you off. Of course, you could just as likely be open to new possibilities. And it may be better to try something new, or the common could work just as well or better.

I’m not sure what a rut is, really. It could be something fundamentally different than habit. Or, one man’s habit could be another man’s rut. I suppose that it is all relative, and how you view your life really dictates whether those habits give you opportunities for fulfillment, or detract from a meaningful life.
