Are you familiar with this quote from Einstein?
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”
Well, I recently learned that the accurate quote, according to Quote Investigator is,
“Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results.”
Now, I’m not here to steal Einstein’s thunder, (I actually have a “thing” for the man) but I found it pretty interesting that there is quite a distinction between the two quotes.
Did you happen to catch it?
Repeating the same mistakes is insanity.
NOT, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
If you do something over and over again, such as exercising, and you are looking for a different result with your body appearance or emotional health, how is that insane? It’s not. It’s logical and practical that you will see a different result.
But if you keep repeating the same mistakes, such as not opening your mail, or not doing the laundry or over shopping, and expecting a different result, (not to have clutter) that’s more in line with insane thinking.
Are you following me here?
Let’s take my Mindfulness Program as an example. There are six mindful tools that require repeating for clutter-free living. By repeating the process you achieve a different result, i.e., less clutter. And it works!
Insanity would be to not repeat the mindful tools and expect them to work. Big Mistake!
What mistakes are you making in your life that you keep repeating and looking for a different result?
If you’ve been trying to declutter your life, perhaps there are some “things” you could be doing differently to get you the REAL results you deserve.
Let’s talk about it and see what we can come up with so you can finally stop the insanity and get the results you deserve. (I think Einstein would like that!)
