Your life is a combination of repeated tasks and special projects. Repeated tasks include all of your regular weekly, daily and monthly routines. These are essential to your life and while they may have some variety (i.e. beans instead of fish for supper), their repetition minimizes the need for special or extra-ordinary intervention from your brain. Special projects interrupt or supplement the normal routine. Weddings, major purchases, moving, special events, and business launches are examples.
