The Brilliance of Innovation

Have you ever taken a few minutes from your lives to sit down, look around, and notice everything that's going on around you. Even if you are alone in your room and everything is motionless, have you ever given yourself the time of day to contemplate the infinite symphony of details transpiring before your eyes? Imagine if the whole world were filled with people like this, that actually took a moment to think, to innovate, where would we be today?

From what I see, there are several reasons why this is not the principle of our ways. We could start off by saying that our civilization has developed too many lazy mannerisms, in terms of analyzing and thinking things over. Most of us are overwhelmed by the amount of hours we work and the time we dedicate to family and friends, that when we actually have the time to innovate, we opt for relaxation and the least amount of mental challenges, but why would we want it any other way?

The wretched path of trying to invent something new is not as easy as it seems. We will very likely be ridiculed by our crazy ideas and sometimes failure may lead to more failure, only to realize that all our time invested was in vain, or better yet like Thomas Edison put it when he was asked, "How many times are you going to fail at creating the light bulb?" to which Mr. Edison replied, "Son, I haven't failed! I've simply discovered another way not to invent the light bulb!"

Yes, the world is filled with inventors and innovators, but I can assure you that it does not go beyond 10% (if not less) of the population which inhabits earth. We must push that percentage to a higher level. Next time, you are sitting down, exhausted from your everyday routine, look around you, look at things and think, how would I make this better? A simple question that may be the catalyst to one of the greatest inventions mankind has ever seen. Read books and try to understand the world that surrounds you, soon you might feel surprised with the amount of ideas that will crowd your mind. You will realize that the only thing separating them from becoming something tangible will be your will to act.

But why do we write about this? The Perfect Male Blog is about becoming the best of what you can be and reaching even further. We must be non-conformist and strive for improving and understanding life on earth, not because we should, but because it will be far more memorable.
