You’ve heard the stories.
Some years ago, a group of people at NASA sent a man to moon.
They sent a vehicle carrying a man thousands of miles into the space and managed to land exactly on the surface of the moon! Can you comprehend the complexity of the operation?
Then there is this guy called Edison, whose invention of the electric bulb touched virtually every single human being on the face of the earth. As if that were not enough, he invented 1093 other stuff that weren’t thought of before.
And there is Columbus who set out to discover the new world and came back with a whole new continent!
And then there is this group of doctors who eradicated Smallpox, arguably the most deadly disease in human history.
Then there is this person named Tim John Berners-Lee who invented the Internet.
And then there is you.
If people can send men to moon, if a single man’s work can light up the whole world, if so many people have done things that were previously thought impossible, what are you waiting for? What is holding you back? Now that you know people like you and me can set out and change the world, what are you going to do about it?
For all these years, you have been reaping the benefits of the work done by other people. Think about the stuff you are using, the gadgets you own and the tools you work with. Every single thing has a story to tell – an exciting and intriguing story of passion and hard work and search for excellence. We have been using all these stuff invented and produced by others, and the only difference between us and them is that they somehow realized that getting things done is far more effective than finding reasons not to.
Now is the time to actually build something by your own.
What is remarkable in being a consumer for your whole life? For a change, try being a producer. Build something. For once, try giving back to humanity.
