I think it’s safe to say that most of us are stopped or stopped at least once a day, even without even thinking about it.
Now that you are familiar with the concept of stopping, you might not be surprised to find this list of stopped places on your list of things to do in order to get your car running.
I have a bunch of stops to do in my day that I never even considered having to do, but here they are in the order of my mental stop list.
As it turns out, it’s not really a “stop” when you’ve already been stopped. You know what I mean? I’ve been stopped before and I’ve been told I have to get out of the car. But this is different. It’s not that my car has been stopped. It’s that my car is not running.
I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of stops to make as I drive to work, and I just don’t have the time to make it all. In fact, I used to get so frustrated with my job that I would just go out and do the same thing again. But that seems to have stopped. Now I just keep doing it until I get to the office. And that’s what makes me sad.
I don’t know why, but I used to go crazy when I had to get out of a car at a red light. Now I just get out of the car and walk or do whatever I want to do. I’m not sure if it’s my legs or my job. I guess it is my job. But I don’t have the time to do it all. It’s just that I have a lot of stops to make.
It’s not just that we don’t have the time to do the same thing over and over. We also don’t have the time to know or understand what the hell we’re doing. To put it simply, you can’t go from driving to a parking spot without a GPS, or from a parking spot to a store without a GPS. I don’t think anyone can actually accomplish this without a GPS.
Yeah, the GPS is a great way to keep track of your travel, but I think there’s something more fundamental at work here. The reason we can go from a parking spot to a store without a GPS (or the equivalent) is that most of us are unaware of the need to use a GPS. We have no idea why or how we’re going to get to the store we need to go. The same is true for our shopping trips.
Even though we know to use a GPS, we don’t always use it. We just know. I know that I used to have a mobile network card in my pocket, but I never used it because I either forgot it or it was lost. I can’t remember if I used it at all. The same is true for my GPS. I know I use it, but I’m just not using it. I don’t know why.
The problem comes into play when we don’t use a GPS or our GPS is not working. The problem is that because we are unaware of the need to use a GPS and we don’t use it, we will continue to drive around blind in circles for the rest of our lives. Our GPSs were probably never programmed to work properly, and we continue making the same mistakes, so we will continue to make the same mistakes.
