With Unity Comes Productivity
Okay, so my last post I talked about hybrid cars and why they’re so awesome, today I would like to share with you some positive attributes to the world as a whole, and the affect you can have by doing little, or big things.
I’d like to begin by saying one thing, I apologize for jumping right into something that isn’t exactly positive; everyone is so mad, to often and to frequently. We go to work and a couple things that annoy us happen, then suddenly it’s a bad day. The sad truth is that in first world countries we are so spoiled; we have everything. Everything we could possibly want or need is right there for us to grab. Us being use to full comfort, food in our bellies whenever we want, entertainment whenever we want, being able to go home and watch TV, or sit on the internet blogging. It’s definitely not the same everywhere in the world, as good as we have it here this creates a foundation of expectations that are higher than a lot of people in the world can even comprehend. Me personally being an observer from afar, I’m not really a fan of how our society is structured and what our children are going to grow up in. Generations are getting more and more anxious, and I believe this is because of technology and what we expose our children to at a young age.
Anyways, my point here is that a lot of us just can’t seem to get along, and it’s over the silliest things more often than not. If we can turn the general attitude of competing with one another around and start helping each other, imagine what we could do, with seven billion plus people. Not saying being somewhat competitive to be a better you isn’t a good thing, but too many people focus on being better or doing better than others, this gets us nowhere.
My best friend from a young age always told me to make sure I take care of myself, because I was working and going to school full time so I didn’t have a whole lot of time for anything else really. He warned me that I could only be the best me, if I took care of myself first, I would win, and he was absolutely right. In time I worked myself hard enough that I started to slow down, and my general efforts seemed to slip. The wisdom here is that most people do naturally want to help others, but you won’t be able to do that without taking care of yourself first.
I wrote an article about an old friend of mine and local businesses a while back, that I never published. It talks about how certain local businesses help the community, using eco-friendly materials for work and the impact they have by doing this being huge. We have always had similar views on that subject so it’s nice to see someone with the same mindset put it into action. this is my best friend from high schools business website: www.greatervictoriatreeservice.ca
If you are in the Greater Victoria Area and are looking for someone who does everything they can to take care of the environment; I suggest giving him a call. (This might be for the ladies.) He is quite the ladies man, but I will say that I honestly have not met someone who cares so much about nature… The man does cut down trees, but when he does I’m pretty sure he prays, as he sees all life as equal.
Any input on this subject? I’d love to hear from any and all who feel that they can contribute. You can contact me by e-mail.
I’ll see you guys soon!
