I think there are three things that I always want to be able to do when I leave my house: take a walk, take a shower, and take a nap. These three things, though, are not really self-aware.
These things are those things that you do in your house, or in your mind, all the time. These things include going to your bank to open your moneybox, taking a bath, and reading a book.
If you want to be able to do these three things, you have to be able to think about them, or to remember them, or to be able to talk about them with other people. These are the three things the average person has to be able to do when they leave their house.
It’s a good idea to keep your thoughts, or whatever you might call them, in check. It’s good to remind yourself to eat your vegetables and not to read your book all the time, but you also have to keep your thoughts in check so that they don’t start controlling you.
When you say stuff like that, you’re saying you’re not paying attention to what you’re doing right now.
If you want to, you can say stuff like that to a stranger in a store or a bar. You can say that to a man who can’t read. You can say that to a woman who has a secret crush on you. You can say that to a child who is too young for you to notice and might be thinking about something else. You can say that to a parent who has just lost a child.
We all say stuff like that to people who have no business telling us what to do. And we all say it to people we think will be mean or upset us if we don’t play along. But it is worth saying it to people who are paying attention, not just because we may have heard it before, but because it can be a way of changing things.
While we’re on the subject of changing things, we often overlook the value of what we are doing because we are too busy doing it to think about why it matters. This is how we allow problems to grow to become bigger problems. When we’re not willing to change, when we’re too busy doing the same thing over and over and over again, our actions and reactions do not change.
So if you’re a contractor, you can change many things, big and small, by focusing on what you do best. By focusing on how you bill and work, you may be able to do a better job. By focusing on what you do for your clients, you may be able to do a better job. By focusing on what you do for the community, you may be able to do a better job.
The thing about the word “change” is that it’s not always easy. The trick is that change is only as big a part of the job as you do. So when we’re on autopilot, we have to go through the motions and decide whether we like it or not. We need to choose not to change. When we’re on autopilot, we need to decide whether or not to change.
