Caring for your home and community will make all the difference in how it comes to life. The energy and energy efficiency in your building will determine how well you are able to care for and serve the community.
When you are the owner of a property you are responsible for the health of your community. It’s important to consider this when deciding what to do for your community. How you care for and serve your neighbors will affect their behavior toward you. You might not want to hire a full time babysitter for your children, but you don’t want your neighbors to feel neglected.
In the end, every person in your community has a role to play. You cannot have an invisible community. The people you work with are the ones who pay your bills. You can make decisions for the building that will affect the health of your community, and by extension the health of your family.
I work with a number of people in my community most of the day. I give them a set of rules that they can expect me to follow. They expect me to follow those rules, and I don’t always. One of their rules is that if they don’t have their meals made on my table, they are to be escorted to the nearest fire station to be picked up by a family member.
I know this is an odd one but some people do work to make their lives as convenient as possible. I do this too, but usually not in this way. I pay for my utilities on time, I have a home phone and cable, I have insurance and all of the utilities. All of the above are things I would expect to pay for in my community. On the other hand, I am not working to make my community as pleasant as possible.
One of the most common criticisms of self-employment is that it’s not something that most people would put up with. I don’t find that criticism to be a valid one. The truth is, some people are unable to go to sleep at night because they’re too busy doing something else. They have to get up in the morning and do something else. To some degree, that’s true with all aspects of life.
At work, its very easy for people to get lazy. Its very easy for them to take breaks from work to enjoy a beer or two or three while they do something else. Its very easy for them to do their own laundry or take a nice long shower. Its very easy for them to go out to a restaurant and have dinner with friends. Its very easy for them to go to a movie or a concert.
I think its a good thing, but I think a lot of people end up in a really unhealthy way of being. Like say, I do my own cooking, but I still feel guilty about it.
People are not only lazy, they can also get really obsessive. The only thing that seems to help them is getting caught in the act. When you’re obsessive, you tend to think that the only way out of it is to do what seems normal and it becomes very easy to follow your own rules. You’re not alone in this, but it can cause you to become a slave to your own habits.
People in the extreme end of being obsessive are just as bad. They have no boundaries, no ability to see outside of themselves for the sake of themselves. Their only recourse is to become so obsessed that they think any other course of action is bad, so they simply go through the motions of things. It can be very hard to break out of this pattern of being in this unhealthy state. It gets easier if you break out of it once you realize that it isnt just a habit.
