Why we are doing what we are doing

Simple questions have painful answers, and this one above is a gem. I don't recall where I heard it for the first time. I can see the reflections in almost everything I read. It instills a never-ending skepticism. Suddenly there is an infinite-scrolling to-do list.
I keen on repeatedly asking those simple questions to myself. They create tension. Sometimes too much. The only way to relieve this tension is to trigger a forward motion. Otherwise, they eat me alive. 👹
Speaking of being eaten alive, the vampire test is a great way for eliminating things that we can't have a meaningful explanation.
Taking a step back and thinking about how do we decide what to do and what are our values are accurate places to trigger questioning.
