Would you still do your homework if you were the last person on earth?

“Of any activity you do, ask yourself: If I were the last person on earth, would I still do it?” ~ Steven Pressfield, The War of Art

Would you still do your homework, even though nobody is left to judge your intelligence?

Would you still post pictures on Instagram, even though nobody is left to judge their attractiveness?

Would you still ride the elliptical, even though nobody is left to judge your body?

All three activities, though beneficial in a world with billions of people, wouldn’t be worth doing if you were the last person on earth. In this post-apocalyptic world, how would you spend your time?

It’s worth spending more (most?) of that time, that way, right now.
