So, all along, we have been making our processors faster, software more portable, rockets fly higher, stock markets zippier, food more efficiently and money more fluid...
But how many of us have made our lives any simpler and qualitative? When have we ever sat back to relax, to take a break, to give our life more meaning as "a whole"? All along we've been doing TQM and Six Sigma to our products, our processes, our office.. Doesn't our own life count?
Let me explain this: So, beyond a limit, no matter how fast your processors run, no matter how your money flows through your assets, there are always things in life that need you. Without you, they just don't make sense. So, if all you need out of your PC is just being able to hook up to the net, listen to music or type a few documents, you don't bother if your PC is a P3 or a 64-bit Duron. You are there, things happen just the way you want them to, and nothing else matters to you. Right? Just like that, if all that you require out of your life is a job, a family, some wealth and nothing more, you should learn to be satisfied with your life and make fuller use of it.
Why make more than what's required? Beyond a certain limit, what you make out of technology or research becomes probably a wonderful concept in science, an achievement.. but nothing more. So, if you know that you have reached that limit, why push furthur? I mean, you haven't certainly haven't seen that many innovations in ear buds, have you? Because ear buds are "just right". You don't need to add a tooth pick and call it "ear pick" or "tooth bud" .. it never works. Rather, you find ways of packaging ear buds, selling them, making money out of them.
Now that i've said what i've wanted to say.. Think, Live a better life!
