2. Lack of control. It mainly refers to behaviors that involve a lack of control caused by obsessive or addictive traits. Apparently, respondents believe lack of self-control is a big problem, especially when it prevents us from enjoying life and satisfying our social compromises. An example is when a young man cancels a date with a good friend for no good reason, just because he doesn't want to stop playing a video game.
3. Mind absent. It refers to people who make mistakes because their mind is somewhere else while they are carrying out the task. Respondents believe this behavior is stupid and can harm us, unnecessarily exposing us to mistakes that we could have avoided by paying more attention. An example is when we are at work, but we are wrong, because we are thinking about problems left at home. This explains why we tend to be so critical of people who wield power or a certain leadership, such as politicians, for example, as we have asked them for greater responsibility.
Avoiding senseless behaviors allows us to live a fuller lifeThe interesting thing is that the behaviors that people classify as more "stupid" also contain some great life lessons. In fact, we do not avoid this type of behavior simply because our culture classifies them as "stupid" or unintelligent, but rather because they take away points in terms of social status.
1. Ignorance vs. Preparation. When we learn to be proactive and look to the future, we take a firmer step and with greater confidence, avoiding mistakes that could cost us dearly, both financially and emotionally. Indeed, going into the unknown without considering the consequences is foolish and can end up undermining our self-esteem for inadequate reasons.
2. Lack of control vs. Self control. Self-control is one of the most important skills we can develop during our life and allows us to seize opportunities in a timely manner avoiding painful situations. Indeed, self-control does not mean limiting oneself but, on the contrary, it is the opportunity to be truly free, because we will not be slaves to our emotions or desires.
3. Absence vs. Presence. Living suspended between the past and the future, between worries and a sense of guilt, ends exclusively by preventing us from living in the present. If we are not able to take advantage of every moment, life will slip away from us in an instant. Therefore it is very important to develop the attitude that makes us be fully present, only in this way can we enjoy the wonders that each moment contains.
