MOTIVATION & LIFE with Joseph Fakorede
Recently, I was faraway from my residence for an assignment when suddenly, my phone rang. I picked it up and answered, “Hello?”
And loudly came the voice of a neighbour whom I didn’t have his number saved in my phone.
He called to inform me of a graphics job he would like me to handle for him urgently. He told me to get the job done and bring it home in the evening.
I told him that to get it done and bring it home would require some advance payment.
He requested for my account details, which I sent to him and within 20 minutes, the money was in my account.
Shortly after I received the payment, I used my ATM card to withdraw the fund from the nearest POS centre.
Then, I called two people who would be doing a big chunk of the job. Thus, the job was set rolling.
Within two hours, one of the guys called me to announce that the job is completed.
“Wowww!” I exclaimed to myself; this is the miracle of technology!
Now, what is the message that I am trying to pass across to you?
The message is that some human beings like you and I thought it necessary to put together all these technological gadgets for the use of humanity.
Graham Bells invented the first analogue table telephone; somebody improved it to become wireless and mobile GSM.
Beyond the fact that we can use the gadget to call; we can equally use it to perform several other functions such as calculation, internet browsing, clock, camera, video, etc.
Now, the gadget has been digitized to the point that you can send or receive cash, documents, audio and videos, etc., among others, with it.
Today, instead of joining long queues at the bank, you can send or withdraw cash in an instant from a POS agent using your phone; what a technology!
You can also search for anything online with your phone.
The calculator is there for you.
The torchlight is there for you.
Social media is there for you.
Games are there for you.
Radio is there for you.
Television is there for you.
If you ask me, I will conveniently say that, a smartphone is a 21st century miracle machine.
Lastly, let me ask you this big question: what are you planning to use your lifetime to do to better the lot of humanity?
Many people are of the erroneous belief that everything that needs to be invented has already been invented, and that everything that needs to be done has been done already.
In reality, this is far from the truth.
The vacuum to make lives better will forever be available; and the opportunity to create new things will never cease until the world ends.
I dare to challenge you to put on your thinking cap and come up with your own version of product or idea that will also make the world a better place to live in.
God bless you!
See you at the top!
