All of this is on autopilot.
But that’s not all.
We have the ability to do our own thing, to build our own life. We can make our own choices. We can choose whether to be a good person or a bad person. We can choose whether to try something new or stick with what we know.
That last point is especially important, because if we choose to do something new, but we don’t know what that something new might be, then it’s not that we’re simply on autopilot.
I get asked about this all the time. I think about it and then think about how many people don’t. I think about the people who just go about doing their thing and never think about the consequences of their actions. I think about the people like me who are constantly telling myself that I should do this or that. I think about how hard I want to exercise my right to do this or not do that.
It’s like being in control of your life. You can just do whatever you want and not worry about consequences. It’s like having a goal and not worrying about the consequences of that goal.
This is exactly what a lot of people are like in their lives. There is a certain amount of control over our lives that we have to think about and act on to stay in control. We have to decide what behaviors we will do and what behaviors we won’t do in order to accomplish our goals. Because we have to put down habits and routines that we have to keep in order to accomplish our goals, we are always making choices in our everyday lives.
This is true on a more general level. For example, when you go out to a restaurant, you’re not looking to eat. You’re looking to get a drink. If you get too drunk or the restaurant gets too busy, you’re going to end up with a few drinks, but you’re not going to end up with a $20 bill. Similarly, when you go to a party, you’re not going to get drunk unless you get too drunk.
Being with your friends is important to you. The good news is that you will be getting along well with them, and they will always be there for you. If you don’t do well with them, you’ll be getting a little older.
Youre not going to be throwing any parties, drinking your way through a bottle of wine, or spending your nights alone with a bottle of tequila. Being with your friends just means youre going to laugh and have a good time, and youll end up getting along well with them. If you dont have a good time, youll be getting older, and youll be heading for trouble.
