Some people take comfort in routines. Others find it predictable and perhaps even dull. Regardless of the routine’s schedule and frequency, knowing what lies ahead facilitates planning.
For a business, predictability is desirable. Intelligent decisions can be based on estimations, preferably as accurate as possible. Peeking into the hypothetical future allows companies to decide how to allocate resources better.
The issue with routines is this. It’s hard to build them up. It’s easy to destroy them. A simple cold can break a fitness routine that took weeks to establish.
Routines need fallback scenarios. What should happen to the routine if, for some reason, something comes up. Try again later?
Map out contingencies for routines and approach them in an “if this then that” manner to ensure continuity.
