Implicit vs Explicit beliefs on importance

Whatever it is, if I'm doing it, then some part of me believes that it's the most important thing I could be doing at that moment.

Often it's something obviously unimportant. Like scrolling Twitter yet again.

In such moments there's a dissonance. A part of me implicitly believes that rest and entertainment is the most important thing at the time. I deserve it. While another part of me explicitly believes that it's a waste of time looking at the fruits of others' labor. Go and do your own labor! 

Some of my personal progress is realizing this dissonance and then finally accepting it. Until recently I had just accepted the explicit feeling as truth. Never left room for reflection.
