The idea that actions are the only things that truly exist seems ridiculous. There is a lot of talk and research that says we are all actually creatures of habit.
One of the reasons we are so obsessed with doing things that are seemingly good is because we like doing them for fun. Or rather, we like playing with them. If you’re going to do the thing, play it. If you’re going to eat the thing, eat it. If you’re going to kill a zombie in a dream, you’re not going to have the experience of killing all the zombies all the way to the surface.
As much as we may like to think that we are so much more aware of our habits, we are actually more aware of our habits than we give ourselves credit for. For example, we don’t even really think about the things we do in the morning until the alarm goes off. But according to many studies, our actions have a major impact on our long-term state of mind, even if we don’t know it.
For example, if we wake up and go for a run-out, we are probably not aware of how many calories we have burned. The same goes for the things we do in the day. We probably don’t think about the fact that we are cooking dinner, or cleaning up our room, or even the fact that we are drinking water or even the fact that we are eating.
So how do we measure our actions? We can measure our actions in the form of, for example, how many calories we burn, how many calories we have burned, how many calories we have consumed. We can also measure how many calories we burn in one day, how many calories we have consumed in the course of seven days. But we can’t measure how much we burn, why do we burn, and what have we done since we started this journey.
We can also measure how many calories we have consumed in one day, how many calories we have consumed in the course of seven days. But we cant measure how much we have consumed since we start this journey.
The idea here is that we can calculate these things. There’s a great example of this from the book “The Art of Memory”, which talks about how the first time you meet someone new, you can figure out how they compare to you. The first day you meet someone new is pretty much a blank slate. The first week is a lot of figuring out how they compare to you. The first month is probably a lot of figuring out how they compare to you. And so on.
The problem is that this isn’t really the same as measuring how much we have earned. In fact, we may not even be measuring the same thing.
This is where earned actions comes in. Earned actions is a concept you may have heard of from the movie Minority Report or another sci-fi movie. Basically, earned actions measures how much you have earned from something. So for example, if you earn something, say $10,000, you have earned that 10,000 and you can spend it before you die.
