There is an old school movie called gremlins.
Before they become gremlins they start out as cute little teddy bear like mowgai’s.
One of the ways they can turn into gremlins?
By breaking one of the rules…
Eating after midnight.
We’ve all got those rules (which if we breach) will turn us into ‘gremlins’ and make us run ‘riot’.
Maybe for you it’s going to bed super late or waking up late.
One of my gremlins that I’ve tamed is pressing that snooze button.
I’ve tried with many failed attempts (but continued effort + reflection) to close the gap between the alarm going off and putting my feet on the ground.
If I press the snooze button I’m a little bit more gremlin in the morning.
If I repeatedly press the snooze button I’m full blown gremlin.
Sure, it passes, but why on earth would I wanna be a gremlin?!
Here is the original quote from the movie gremlins on the midnight rule:
“But the most important rule, the rule you can never forget, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs, never feed him after midnight.”
What are your rules for avoiding turning into a gremlin?
What’s your main one.
p.s. your reflections are uniquely your own to define, discover and develop.
