“Consistency is the playground of dull minds.” I’ve been really feeling this line from Sapiens: A brief history of humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. My entire foray into Insta is one big leap toward shaking things up to keep my mind sharp. I notice I keep craving structure and familiarity in my life, but too much of it makes me feel like an out-of-date robot. How do you balance those competing urges? One small thing I’m doing today is posting here (consistency) and trying a new-to-me font inspired by @thegraytergood (shaking things up).
