As you pursue more training, education, and experience in life you will become better and better at maximizing your time and managing your tasks. But at the end of the day, no matter how well you use your time or how efficiently you complete your tasks, both time and tasks only matter in the context of relationships. In other words, one of the main reasons training, education, and experience are important is because they increase your ability to pursue, build, and maintain healthy relationships with those around you.
Remember, radical autonomy is based on extreme individualism, but strong community and relationships are built on shared vision. Exit plans are based on prioritizing personal safety above all else, but strong community and relationships are built on commitment for the long haul. Illusions are based on fake and perfected versions of real, imperfect people, but strong community and relationships are based on transparency. Radical autonomy, exit plans, and illusions can be difficult to give up. But don’t forget: you cannot achieve anything worth doing on your own, you don’t live in a safe world, and you were not designed to be fake. You were designed to be real and authentically you, you were designed to live life alongside other people to make living in a dangerous world possible, and you were designed to be in relationship with others because we all need each other to get where we’re going, to do things worth doing, and to make sense of the world around us.
