Pondering the universe

Category:Think about it

Sometimes it just pays to put in some thinking time to get our heads around the reality of what we may have taken for granted.

Avoiding time wasters
There are many that make a lot of noise to engage in a lot of discussion, but essentially waste our time.
Experience junkies
Many want more to their lives, and so attend workshops and seminars to gain more knowledge. However, they can then get caught up in the experience and high of a workshop, and so spend a lot of time jumping from one to another.
Personal choices
We tend to believe that in relation to the rest of humanity, our personal decisions don't count for much, but is that really true?
Quotas
Some see having quotas for women or others as being a free ride, instead of being based on merit. It is not. They are about finding out what is stopping them achieving the number of positions that represents their numbers in society.
Reality vs la-la land
We have free will, with which we can choose what to believe. We can choose to only see what is in front of us, but we can also choose to believe things about which we have no proof. When the latter consistently ignores reality, we venture into la-la land.
Thought exercise
Everyone lives their lives with a set of beliefs that largely governs how they look at the world and defines the types of thinking and actions that they are willing to engage. However, sometimes you need to think about possibilities outside those, and treating those as a thought exercise is a way of doing that, without having to give up any of your beliefs, just yet.
