How You Do Anything…

The other day, in yoga class, the instructor said, “How you do anything, is how you do everything,” and it’s been knocking around in my head. Google reveals I am not the first person to be struck by the concept, and my yoga teacher wasn’t the first to articulate it, though–as with all wisdom formatted as Facebook memes–there appears to be some confusion as to who was.

So I’ve been thinking about the phrase, and living my life,  which has brought up these kinds of question: “is it true?” “should it be true?” “should I aspire for it to be true?” or, “if it’s true should I actively aspire to change so that it’s not true???”

To encapsulate the direction of my thoughts: “When is habit a gift, and when is it a trap?”

More to come on this topic.
