Complex Tasks

Posted by Declan on October 5, 2006, at 19:04:39

People who don't like change may not like the feel of time. I like very simple tasks. Mowing is good, vacuuming the floor and carpets is also good (round and round in circles). Anything is good as long as it can be reduced to a simple set of rules that is easy to follow.

In this respect walking down the street is difficult. Much more difficult than driving a car. Driving cars is so good. There is no (legal) eventuality that is unprovided for. Whereas walking down the street is more difficult. OK, you say, always keep left (I know many of you keep to the right, that's OK, there's room for all of us, I don't want to be rigid), but not everyone keeps to the left when walking in Australia. A doctrinaire keeping-to-the-left on each and every occasion (in Australia) is more trouble than it is worth.

Imagine though more complex tasks. Take something really scary like making a vegetable garden. Where to start? The potential for failure immense, the opportunity for entertainment limited, and all the while the panic about passing time.

I thought I had something to say about the feel of passing time being similar to the intolerable feel of water or sand to an oversensitive autistic person, but maybe I'll leave it there for the moment.
