Groundhog Day, the 1993 movie starring Bill Murray.  That’s what we’re talking about today.  Well not really – though there is a pretty clear link between today’s discussion with Tim Allred on the habit of reflection, and that feeling of ‘groundhog day’.  It will all make sense at the end, I promise!
