The fact is that the majority of our thinking is on autopilot.
Like the majority of our thoughts, the majority of our actions are in effect on autopilot. This is the opposite side of the coin for autopilot-autopilot. We are on autopilot, while those actions are in effect on autopilot.
The problem is that we are not aware of our autopilot activities. We are constantly on autopilot. It’s hard to remember that it’s autopilot to do whatever it is we are doing, but when we are busy doing it, we forget it is autopilot.
The thing is, we have autopilot. Our autopilot activities are the things we don’t even notice because we can’t stop them. Yet, the things that we do are the things that we don’t even notice.
Our brain is made up of 80% thoughts and actions and of course autopilot is a big part of our actions. Our autopilot activities are really about the things we do which is why they are the hardest to stop. The thing is, we are so busy doing autopilot activities that we forget to stop. The result is that we are constantly doing what we are doing with no awareness that we are doing it.
In my experience, your worst autopilot habits come from overworking yourself. So if you do something that you feel good about, like maybe you are getting a lot of great grades in school, then you can easily stop and check in with yourself to see what you are doing. If you are really super-busy with work, then you can just go to sleep. You can even just lie down until you don’t feel like it.
As the world becomes more open and open, and the people who stay in your mind are more receptive to your ideas, and you can actually be more receptive to them than usual.
You might be surprised how much more people actually think about you. It’s like having a lot of people in your life, but you know that you are not the only one.
I think one of the best ways to become really receptive to others is to be able to see them as more than just your problem to solve. The more I learn about the human condition and the way that we are wired, the more I can see that if we are not receptive to what others have to say, that is the time when we need to grow a thicker skin, and not be so reactive.
