Living on autopilot means you have stopped being an active participant in your own life. Rather than constantly challenging, motivating, and pushing yourself to do better – you do the same things day after day, without giving your actions much thought. Wake up, go to work, go home, eat dinner, watch TV, go to sleep. Wash, rinse, repeat.
The reality is that most people live on autopilot – and it’s not ideal. That’s because when you’re simply going about your routine, you’re not actively working towards your goals or thinking about how you can improve your life. When this happens, we get stuck in our patterns and we stop moving forward.
