If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
Because although we like the things we can't (or don't) do and do things we dislike, we have personal schemas and quotas set by society about what we should do. Humans naturally conform to the people and society around them, so we do what is expected of us in order to be accepted by our peers and authority figures.
