Nowadays everyone can speak up their mind, telling people what to do, whom not to choose on the next election, who the terrible mom is, when to get married, or where to go next holiday because the other places are touristy and less authentic.
Nowadays everyone can make podcast, publish their own stories, create his / her own reality show, have audience or become ‘influencer’. Everyone can build his / her own stage. Even dog can have millions of followers.
When we think about it again, it’s crazy. Almost everyone that is connected to internet has (more or less) equal opportunity to tell stories. Sometimes for free, sometimes with a bit of investment in advance hoping to gain for more money or privilege in the future.
When we think about it again, what a noisy world out there, if we want to listen to everything. We can spend the entire year consuming everything without really getting anything. The world now is full of free information but it also comes with distractions. Which one is which, it’s us to decide.
So I think it’s very important to remind ourselves what are we aiming for. To have vision. To rethink about our purpose. To be selective about what are we spending our time and energy for. To teach our children what really matters at the end of the day.
