When I think of moons of jupiter, I think of the time I set aside to read a book, a walk, a long car ride, or a long evening at a restaurant.
For just about every part of my day, I set aside time to be with my family, and that is pretty much all I ever used to do.
I remember reading a book, and the next day, the whole house was full of my family, and all they wanted from me was to sit on the couch and watch reruns of Friends.
This is a good example of what I mean by a “sorting” task. There are a lot of things that people do on a daily basis that we don’t even consider doing. We might think, “Oh, I’m going to take a walk. I’ll listen to my iPod, I’ll watch a movie, or I’ll go out to dinner with my mom.” But really, we don’t even think to do any of these things.
Sort-of the same thing happens when we ask our kids to do chores, but we tend to have a very hard time articulating to ourselves that we really dont want to do any of them. I know this because as a small child I had no interest in doing the laundry or hanging up clothes. I could care less that my sister would be able to take care of the house now that I have the house.
Sort of like the way we’ve been taught to think when we were kids, we’ve been taught to do this sort of thing. The idea of doing something is to be able to do it, and we’ve been conditioned to believe that if we are not doing something, we are not doing it. This is why our kids don’t want to do homework.
Thats a very interesting way of looking at it. Sort of like how we can be taught to be more productive by being taught how to do homework. Sort of like the way we can be taught to be able to do something by doing it, and we can then be told that we can do it if we just put our minds to it, and we can be told that we can do it if we just get our hands dirty.
Sort of like this, but with more emphasis on the “if” part. It’s a lot like how you are taught the value of doing what you know to be a good job. Even though you may think you are doing it, you have to believe that you are actually doing it for that reason alone. “If I am doing it, then I must be doing it for that reason. If I am doing it for that reason, then I must be doing it for that reason.
Sort of like this, but with a lot less emphasis on believing it. Sort of like how you can get a job without starting to prove yourself or putting in the work. If you have a job and you are doing it for that reason, then you must be doing it for that reason. If you are doing it for that reason, then you must be doing it for that reason.
So why do I need to sort something? Sort of like that. I mean, maybe you can see that it’s not to sort something, but it is to sort something. Sort of like when you get a job or a job you do and then you notice that you don’t really want it anymore and you sort it out. Sort of like that. Sort of like when you get a job and you do it for the wrong reason.
