Wash your Dog
There are rituals we all take part in that help define us and reinforce our connection to the outside universe. They include things like:
- Washing your own dog - Polishing your own boots - Doing your own dishes - Etc
You can't do these things as well as other people who have practiced more and better than you have. You probably don't even have the latest technology to do these things well, or at scale, or with precision. But they remind you: you have a dog, you have a need to wear these on your feet, you make dishes.
They're nice rituals, and they're constructive, but not efficient at scaling labor but very effective at scaling humility, and that is important.
