There was a time when I found many things I had to do pointless. „My goodness, what a waste of time. There’s no point at all! What better things could I do with my time! “
At some point I realized that meaning cannot be found in the things you do, or that it is not dependent on the things you do at all.
Meaning lies outside of things and what one does. You can say that it encompasses everything. If one has recognized this meaning, then there are no more meaningless activities. The meaning is there. No matter what you are doing or have to do for the rest of your life. This realization has helped me a lot. Especially when I am busy doing the dishes or vacuuming or cleaning up. Or with the tax return.
