...Why does action necessarily have to have a goal? We have all kinds of choices of what we can do with our time. Clean the house, repair something, write a book, work for a charity, play with the kids, do the laundry etc. Just know that although you are doing something, you are just doing it without worrying about the end result. You just do it and pay attention to what your doing. When it's time to stop, you stop. When it's time to eat, you eat.
But you see, most of the time when we are doing something we rarely pay attention to it. We are usually focusing on our thoughts and stuff. We think about what we will do later, and what we did yesterday and so on. We think about what we will do when we finish writing the book or cleaning the house. We don't pay attention to the food we eat or the spoon we eat it with.
