The default habit

When you have nothing to do, what do you default to doing?

I often default to playing back-to-back games of speed chess on the internet.

A friend of mine defaults to picking up a book around him and reading it. Another picks up a guitar and starts strumming it.

Some people default to catching a movie, going to a restaurant or hanging out in a bar. Others change channels on the television.

The universal default action of our age is to check notifications on one’s phone.

Your default habit is a deeply ingrained gateway for how you spend most of your free time. Be aware of what it is, and whether it serves you.
