The Two Socks Test

Deep down, in reality nobody knows exactly what they are doing with their life or where the arrow of time is taking us. Even then, most of us care too much about others’ opinions in regards to who we are or what we do. As an attempt to alleviate this problem, I devised a simple test: on some days, I wear two different socks. Just because everyone wears a pair of similar socks, it is a strange thing to do. But it is a reminder for me to not care about how people do things, what is considered normal or most importantly what kind of opinion they hold about me. As a bonus, it also helps in breaking set mental patterns that inhibit creativity.
