Repeating the same old because you can’t figure out what’s next is fine as long as the same old works and nothing changes.
Problem is everything changes.
Not over night, usually, but it does change and most of us don’t realize it till it is too late.
Repeating the same old is just fine as long as you know what’s next and have invested to have “what’s next” become the same old in time.
So… the same old becomes doing what works and getting ready for what’s next, continually. Now that I can line up with.
