And you’re right, it’s one of those things that seems to have homeowners pretty stumped. I think it is because painting your home is one of those things if you get wrong, you can’t really hide it. Paint covers a lot of the surface of your home’s interior and exterior, so it will definitely impact your decor.
Buying or building a new home, you would think would eliminate the paint stress, but it can actually be the very thing that causes it. Among the many decisions that a new homeowner has to make during construction, choosing paint colors can be the most difficult. I know this because I get asked a lot, plus the Google search terms “should I paint my new construction home?” is one of the most frequent ones that lead people to our website. It goes beyond just choosing colors.
Links are one of the three major ranking factors in Google. So if you want your website’s pages to rank high in search, you will almost certainly need links. Google (and other search engines) look at links from other sites as “votes.” These votes help them identify which page on a given topic (out of thousands of similar ones) deserves to be ranking at the very top of the search results.
The problem is when we’re on autopilot for so long that we forget we’re on autopilot. Because when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them. Whereas a person with self-awareness is able to exercise a little meta-cognition and say, “Hmm… every time my sister calls me and asks for money, I end up drinking a lot of vodkas.
Not sure if you’ve noticed, but we all seem to have a tendency to think we can control our actions and do things without thinking about it. There’s no reason to think that we can’t. In fact we can. We just need to look at every possible outcome of our actions. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions are just another way of saying, “I’m on autopilot for so long that I’m not even aware I’m on autopilot.
The problem of not being aware of your habits, routines, impulses, and reactions can be one of the main reasons why someone makes the mistake of doing something that could get them killed. We all probably have a tendency to make decisions based on emotion. We like to think we can be in control of our emotions, but we can’t.
The same can be said for our actions. We have been in the habit of not knowing what our own emotions are. If we know that they are the very thing that is causing the pain, we can probably do a better or better job of understanding how that pain is causing us harm. And if we know it is the very thing that is causing everyone harm, we can do better or better. We can then be more apt to make the best decision.
The same can be said for our actions. It is so easy to look at our actions but forget that we have no control over them. The reason we are hurt is because we are in the habit of not caring that we are in the habit of being hurt. The problem is that we have been so focused on avoiding pain, we have forgotten that pain is our way of learning. We are hurt because we are in the habit of not being aware that we are having a hurt.
The problem with not caring is that it results in us losing control. We can be hurt to a point where we no longer even recognize we are having a hurt. It is then easy to become so fixated on the pain that we forget to be aware of it. As a result, we never learn how to be more pain free but instead become a victim of pain. We can be hurt to the point where we are on painkillers and not even recognizing we are on the drugs.
For me the most painful thing that happened to me was two years ago when I hurt my back. I was in an airplane that was making a very short trip from San Francisco to Las Vegas. The pain was excruciating. And then it was the plane landing in Las Vegas. I was sitting in the back of the plane and then I felt this sudden jerk and pain shoot through my back. I didn’t think anything of it until it was too late.
