Let People Be

In which Ben Brooks tells people that logging and tacking is pointless if they don’t do anything with the data. Because you have to do something with your inputs to make them useful to other people.

Can we stop telling people that what they are doing is pointless if it doesn’t align with how we think? Just because you don’t think it has value doesn’t mean that there is no value. After all, maybe the act of tracking and logging is the thing a person needs to get motivated, not the review of the data. Maybe we should just, you know, let people be people and go about our own lives.

I guess we wouldn’t have discussions if we didn’t point to things people did and say, “they are doing it wrong”. Because I’m pointing to Ben and saying he’s doing it wrong because he pointed to an article that said they were doing it wrong.
