Being conscious we can get things done and do things well. The key is knowing what we are trying to do and then using our senses and responding to what we sense based on what we are trying to do. If we don't understand what we are trying to do then we break what we are doing down into small ideas that we do understand. Then we can focus on doing. Being conscious not only can we get things done we can also sense change and respond to it. We can also enjoy life.
