Life is complex, but sometimes I think we make it more complicated than it has to be. (Feel free to tweet that
I am blessed or cursed (two-sides, same coin) with an immense curiosity about oh so many things, some very important and useful things and some trivial, nonsensical things.
For example, today I have been wondering about why some people are happy and some are not,…why some are strong-willed and some more passive…what we can do to solve our financial crisis…why my sister got all of the imagination and artistic skills while I got the head for numbers and facts…how I can make my youngest son clean his room and hand in his homework…why I can’t remember to run the dishwasher…and why we can make electronics that talk to us and think for us, but we can’t make pants that don’t collect dog hair…
I like to make sense of things, to put them in order, to pick them apart and look for answers. It’s the ultimate paradox of information – attempt to search for and ingest every piece of information on a topic available, then try to compress it all down to a simple, straightforward answer.
It often drives those around me nuts…
I want simple answers to life’s complex questions…and I think you do as well.
The point of what I do here on the Productive Life Concepts blog is not to choose the most popular keywords and to try to write the most eye-catching headlines so that I can get the most website traffic. It doesn’t provide my income (in fact it costs me money and countless hours each month.) It’s not my job…but it is my passion.
If I’m looking for better answers, I suspect others are as well. If I’m curious, I suspect others are as well. If I have an opinion, I expect others do as well. If I’m struggling, I expect others are as well.
It’s an excuse to indulge my curiosity, to ask interesting questions, to find answers that help me and that might be of use to others. And as I evolve, so will it, as will we all…one can only hope.
