In my opinion, some of the reasons why there has been no action on "Climate Change" (et all) is that people (you, me, everyone) are too self absorbed to see the world around us. We are too concerned with our own "little" lives compared to the big (huge!) picture, of the world. We have to deal with our daily commute to our occupation that keeps us busy everyday. Then we have to deal with that occupation and the people surrounding it. Then we have to deal with the people at home, spouses, children, grand children, friends, etc. Then we have to deal with protecting what is "ours", our home, our vehicles, RV's, etc. It just keeps going and going. When do we ever stop to "smell the roses"? And its bigger than just doing some gardening. People have to get together on this topic. Have no other purpose than simply improving our habitat, our world. So how could it happen with us all being like this? It can't...not until some catastrophe happens that interrupts our self-absorbed "little world". Is this the purpose of the myths surrounding the year 2012? We'll soon find out.
Hi Richard I'm in agreement with what you say for the most part but there are times when you need to perform the different tasks (getting work done, thinking, etc) all at once or all for one purpose and separating out those tasks into individual time allotments (ie times when you're only doing one of them at a time), are not always possible. I do agree that it seems that working at different locations (for me, at work, or at home - out on the deck, etc) seems to dictate the type of work that inevitably gets done. So it seems that I have noticed the affects of what you describe but I have never entertained the idea of doing different "tasks" in those different environments nor have I actually kept track of what environment actually is better for what task. I would imagine if a person has their "way of working" broken down into the various "ways" that they operate and that the current tasks at hand enable them to work in that way then perhaps as you describe makes total sense. For the typical person, I'll bet that they haven't really put that much thought into how they work nor what environment suites them to perform any particular task (myself a case in point). Now I say this with the utmost respect, it seems that coming to such conclusions might only be attained by someone of an older persuasion who after years and years of working in their various environments, doing the varying tasks at hand (and keeping track of all of the situations, etc) to be in a position to: 1) Breakdown their work habits in such a way; 2)have had access to a variety of work environments; 3)Been at the level in Mazlow's pyramid to facilitate, or entertain such ideas. I beleive this is where you are (in Mazlows Hierarchy) and I, being at the bottom of that pyramid can only look up at you and hope that some day I'll be there. Perhaps I should find a nice cozy spot somewhere, NOT here at work, to go back and think about this. Too many interruptions here. LOL John Bowman W - H -
