    Default Idiom with "go"

    Hi;
    I found a description like this while I was studying idioms wiht "go" ;

    *Go through the motions
    -When you go through the motions, you do something like an everyday routine and without any feelings whatsoever.


    How can I use this idiom in a sentence?

    Thanks

    Here is one example:

    I am disappointed in John. I had great hopes for him when he became president of the club, but he is just going through the motions.
