When I sat down to decide what to write for this months’ column I was going to go into the whole explanation of the constantly changing dates of Easter, but I thought it might be too direct on religion. I was going to go into the whole constitutional court ruling and the public protector, but I thought it might end up being too political.
So instead I thought I would focus a little bit on our hurried and fast-paced lives of today.
We just don’t seem to have as many hours in the day as we used to have – I mean we do, but they simply don’t feel like enough anymore.
Today we have so much more advanced technology than in years gone by, yet we can’t seem to get to everything. How is that possible?
We have microwaves, induction plates, electric kettles, auto-washing machines, tumble dryers, vacuum cleaners – all and more than our forefathers and probably more than our parents. Yet, still not enough hours to do what we want to do.
What do we have that generations before never had, yet they got through more than us in a day? We have Google – the instant answer, explanation to everything, and at the end of that it leads to us thinking we ARE Google! We think we must deliver instantly but, of course, we can’t because we are human. But we have become so accustomed to getting everything instantly that we believe WE must deliver instantly, and of course we can’t.
So, things build up and pile up because we are human and have to literally DO things.
So in 2016, take a chill-pill and do one thing at a time, and if you don’t know how, Google it!
Until next month…
See ya, Nats
