When was the last time you smiled to a stranger on the bus?

When was the last time you randomly met a new cool stranger that totally rocked your world?

When was the last time you sat down to listen to a CD, read the booklet, admired the art, felt that moment, special as it was?

The answer is probably, a long time ago…

We have all the tools and gadgets available to ease communication, but we are overloaded by it, to the point that we now use all that technology to isolate ourselves from others, to form digital cliques of people who agree with us and shun anybody who thinks differently… welcome to the age of forced uniformity, a mass of homogeneously assembled heterogenous groups of people.

And it’s hurting us a lot, the effects in all industries can be seen, take for example recruiters and employees, no longer seeking top talent with top EQ’s (Emotional Quotients for the acronym-impaired) and rather looking for quick and dirty “fits”… in reality, this dehumanization of the employee, of the lover (Hi, I saw your profile at http://www.desperatedatingsite.com and you really seem to have my same tastes, wanna hook up?), of the family, of the friend, that lack of acceptance of the different and the benefits of the opposing point of view, that desire that the world be filled with unique individuals, like yourself of course, is causing enormous ripples.

Top talent will never ever be an easy fit, the best lover will never ever be the easy hookup that you dissected online, the best friend will never ever be the faceless wall of text that always agrees with you… the sooner you dispel the notion that things will always be the way you want and focus on the things that really make you happy then you’ll start re-humanizing yourself and and others.

Then you’ll see… the best things in life will come to you…
