I loved the article in the Wall Street Journal By Andy Kessler.
Kessler’s point is that technology is all about convenience.
The way I put it is that online, there is no line!
With technology, we can do things proverbially–better, faster, cheaper.
But so much of technology really is about doing things with the utmost convenience–that means that rather then spend time hunting or gathering, searching or shopping, traveling or transacting, gaming or gambling, we can go online and in Internet speed it’s done!
The beauty of the Internet and technology is that there is no queue, no lines, no waiting–just lots of convenience mainly with point and click.
I couldn’t hate lines more–hate wasting time–hate doing stupid things that have no real meaning–>time is absolutely precious!
We are mortal and one day, time stops for all of us, so we better use what we have well–use it wisely, not wastefully.
When we have convenience from technology, we have to spend less time on the mundane and have more time to do the things we really enjoy or that can grow us.
So get the doldrums done quickly online, and spend more time with family and friends, on fitness, pursing spiritual matters, and even learning the secrets of the universe–and then blogging about them.
Technology is a convenience and a true G-dsend. 😉
