The Midlife Bachelor Personal Makeover >> Attitude Adjustment / Mental Makeover Rev 2.0 >> Avoid the Ruts …

Avoid the Ruts
As a midlife bachelor, you can easily fall into any one of a number of ruts … and as part of any attitude adjustment or mental makeover, it is critical that you are cognizant of the various ruts you can unintentionally fall into.   Especially at our midlife point, we are often set in our ways … and we tend to revert to old behaviors that we are accustomed to.  Often these behaviors represent easy choices – the path of least resistance.   For example, it is very easy to come home from work, and drink beer on the couch in front of the television every night.   But is that REALLY what you should be doing?  Probably not!   The beer drinking couch potato is an easy and superficial example of one rut that we can fall into.  Most ruts that midlife bachelors face are not so easily recognized … unless you are watching out for them.   I’ll cover two critical ruts that I’ve seen many midlife bachelors fall into – just in case they might apply to you.
