Pretend that living is like driving… and the car is you

March 29, 2010

– do this to just make sure you keep on living in life, instead of retiring into a black hole of nothingness (or inactivity, or inertia)

Just like you need the car to be kept in working condition and fixed up when problems arise, one needs to work hard (whether in school or in a job) to keep his life in working condition (you need money to sustain yourself and live satisfactorily; you get money from a job).

And just like you need gasoline for your car, you need to have continual social interaction with people (a positive, honest, and down-to-earth interaction [as described in my last post]) to keep your life fueled – or – to continue to give yourself the energy, enthusiasm, and confidence to approach life honestly and keep moving forward (or keep “driving”)

Thus: Just like car maintenance and money are needed to keep the car working and to keep driving forward, *one needs to work hard but have continuous, positive social interaction to keep him/herself happy and enthusiastic about living*.
