The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
A great example of an autopilot behavior is when a user of your website (or other website) is typing something in an email. If you don’t want your email readers to accidentally read it, you can have them read it in plain text, as long as they are looking for the words. In fact, there’s even an app for this.
Auto-correct is another example of autopilot behavior. People tend to auto-correct the way they type the same way they would if they were typing the text themselves, so theres no need to stop and think about what youre typing. You could think “I want to write ‘I love you’ instead of ‘I love you’” and just write it.
Autopilot behavior is so common and so powerful that I don’t think we have to worry about it. I mean, it’s just basic human nature to do what we do, that’s all. But if we really think about it, there’s some really important things that we do without even thinking about it. For instance, one of the things that we think about a lot when we’re on autopilot is that autopilot is a waste of time.
Autopilot is just a fancy name for the time spent doing things without thinking about them. In fact, thinking about them doesn’t help us at all. Thats why we all get a little annoyed when we get on autopilot. We just don’t realize what autopilot does to our lives. It ruins our lives.
I feel like most people think that the main purpose of autopilot is to save money. I dont know, I guess I want you to think about that a little more before you make up your mind.
Well, I can’t be the only one who thinks autopilot is a waste of time. In fact, I think it’s actually a very useful skill. For example, think of the time you wasted learning to drive. Instead of using your time to drive around your neighborhood or to go to a new restaurant, you could have saved yourself a lot of money by learning how to drive.
