I just spent an hour dealing with a dilemma with the cable company. An hour, I could have been planting flowers, or talking to a friend or working on a project to help others. It was my choice, but sometimes one needs to make better choices than haggling over a broken electronic device. Take for example Steve Jobs – a genius who is gone from this planet much too soon. He led us into the universe of personal laptops, Iphones, Ipads and possibilities. Jobs was a dreamer who knew how to close the gap between visions seen and visions realized. He will be missed but never forgotten. He changed the world.
How many of us have dreams we have yet to realize or fulfill? Dreams – that put into action may not change the entire world but that could deeply impact our communities??
Maybe, for awhile at least , it’s just best to tell the cable company , the missing contractor, the arrogant customer service representative on the phone to STUFF IT! We’ve all got more important things to do. Perhaps it is wise we take Steve Jobs “ no excuses” mantra and get started on realizing our dreams.
