You probably don’t think about it too often but communication is something that, in today’s world, is incredibly easy and important.
Could you imagine having to wait days, weeks, or months to get a response to someone? That’s what had to happen not to long ago yet now we start to panic if we don’t get a response within a few minutes.
I like to take a step back every once in awhile and just think about how an aspect of today’s life is so much better then it was previously. I don’t like to take things for granted. For example, I’m typing this on my phone, something that, if you proposed the idea of “writing” down something on a small pad with no pen to someone 40 years ago, they would have laughed at you and would have thought it impossible. Today though, most people you see in a first world area has a phone in their hand, pocket, purse or bag. I think that is amazing.
So I’d like you, since you made it this far I to the post, to think for a few moments about how communication has made your life easier and then think about how much harder it would have been to do the same task 20 years ago.
Thanks for reading!
