Do you ever think that what we do is pointless?
Like, fixing your bed knowing that you're just going to mess it up again when you sleep, or doing well in primary school even though it counts almost nothing towards your future?
Anything? Anything at all?

Caring about what others think of you is pointless, too. If they don't like it, that's their problem. Less stress for me. In this case, ignorance is bliss.

Anything we do on this earth is insubstantial when compared against the vastness of the universe.

So yeah, I don't make my bed.

Everything we do matters.
Everything we do does not matter.
It is a subjective game we play.

I never got into the habit of making my bed, or many other seemingly pointless tasks..
Still, filth multiplies, and eventually you will be unable to restore things to the way they were.
It is best to simply have those silly good habits..
Save yourself the embarrassment.

Small things give you a mindset, so yeah they do contribute to the future. Like doing well in primary school - if you're used to being the best you're more likely to work to stay there later on.

When making my bed, all I can think about is "Who the hell am I trying to impress?" Some ppl think its a self respect issue and reflects your character, but to heck with that =3 sure they instill good habits and whatnot but I don't notice it amount much to anything =/ I know ppl who did absolutely NO work during primary school but still managed to go to college and pass

Hmm...Posting on this thread.

Also, flushing after urinating...it's a waste of water, just let it sit there.

Opening an empty fridge and expecting to see food has appeared since you last checked 15 minutes earlier.

Squeezing the last bit of toothpastes multiple times like a beggar instead of getting a new one.

School work
Worrying about what others think
Making friends with all your classmates
Worrying and regretting,
Praying

and many many other things, this world is full of pointless things, so just do what you want and think whatever you want about it.

Deep and best answer to this thread thus far. I'm going with what this dude said. ^

If I thought anything I did was pointless, I wouldn't be doing them. At the end of the day, what I do, no matter how much I may hate it, contributes to something I wish to accomplish in my far from pointless life.

Having OCD, my side of cleanliness if fucking stellar. But I absolutely DESPISE making my bed. But I have to, or it'll drive me up the wall. Cleaning in general, drives me up the wall. I know it's nice to keep everything sanitary, but besides that, I don't understand why I'm constantly attempting to make my apartment clean, when NOBODY comes over. I blame my obsessive compulsiveness.

Regularity and maintenance is what's important. You regularly go into learning and you do well in it then develop a competent attitude that will be of major help. Fixing your bed, I seem to treat that as dismissable but I'd rather get into it more (I primarily just focus on putting things were they belong and keeping the floor clean). Fixing the bed will teach you to keep yourself and surroundings in a neat manner. Certainly neatness is better than a mess. It's innate. We'll groom ourselves often. I'd rather do as many of those tasks myself than have someone do them for me.

Haha that's why I graduated with less than an 85 and always have a messy bed.
