I used to teach English (as a foreign language) a long while ago, and one of the exercises I used in class was a list of inventions. Then the students had to put them in order.
There’s plenty of lists of inventions, the most famous, the biggest income generating, the most “out of the box.”
Of course, these are largely subjective, since there’s really no way to measure any of them.
But one thing they do all have in common. They were invented because somebody wanted to do something better than they already were doing.
All based on making the human experience more enjoyable, pleasurable, and less difficult.
Most commercially popular inventions of the last couple hundred years involve human communication.
Telephone, telegraph, phonograph, Internet, VOIP, and the list goes on and on.
It’s pretty clear that communicating with each other is something that is very, very important.
The desire and ability to communicate is programmed so deeply that often times we don’t even need words.
If you’re with somebody close to you, your facial expression alone is enough to start a fight or madly rush off to the bedroom.
Not being able to communicate feels like being in a self imposed prison. Wanting to tell somebody something, but not knowing how, or not feeling as if you’ve got enough courage can be horribly frustrating.
Many people go years, even lifetimes, wanting to say something to somebody, but never “getting around to it.”
The paradox is that often times, that person “knows” what you want to say, and is just waiting, hoping, for you to say it.
In fact, most of us are wandering around with things we’d LOVE to say, on a daily basis, but for some reason, we keep it bottled up.
Imagine the surprise, (and all the connections) when you realize others are feeling the same way.
That means when you go first, and show them the way, it will be even better.
