There’s an English proverb that says “necessity is the mother of invention”. I believe it to be incredibly truthful. We often don’t give any attention to problems which not affect us, nor our friends and family. However, when we experience let’s say for example a disease or some family member is afflicted by it, we change abruptly.

Kenneth Shinozuka was just four years old when in a stroll with his grandfather, he happen to experience one of the scariest moments in his life, as he recalls. His grandfather simply got lost…

This was a presage that later the family confirmed. His grandfather had Alzheimer’s disease.

Over the course of time his condition got worse and not only that but he also started wandering often.

So how did Kenneth turn the necessity to guarantee the safety of his grandfather into an invention? Well, that’s what you’ll find out in this 5min video.

Life… for what is it worth?

Some days you just find yourself wavering in your purpose… Life…for what are you worth?

What do we seek for our lives? Is it money, love, friendship, recognition, improvement,…?
The definition of success and greatness varies from person to person. There aren’t absolute paths for everyone, each one of us has to make its own path. Some will prefer money, fame and stress. While others will prefer the joy of a modest lifestyle, with friendship, values and love. This haven’t to be divergent lifestyles, however, most of the times there are walls hindering the mixture between this two types of living.

If you are questioning what got me thinking in these deep matter, I will answer you. It was the video below.

For me the meaning of life is straightforward. You strive everyday for surpassing limitations, help everyone you can and try to change the world (sharing knowledge, ideas, and love).

  • 1st – Strive everyday for surpassing limitations

Whatever its fears, diseases or simply mindset, you have always room for improvement. Each day, you can go out of your comfort zone and modify your routine to do something new to help you surpassing those barriers you see.

  • 2ndHelp everyone you can

Compassion is a key to high self-esteem and personal joy. You help others and they will reward you. Maybe with their elation that is contagious, their gratitude or with other recompense.

  • 3rdTry to change the world

In life you have just two options, whether you accept how the world is structured or you fight for what you want it to become. If you have ideas who are worth fighting for, what are you waiting? Thoughts are the tools for the action we take, they aren’t merely a suggestion!

Good luck and don’t be afraid to make your own decisions, great leaders made them even when none believed in them (e.g. Steve Jobs).

This talk changed my life I hope it changes yours too (for better). We often think that being a machine, or being perfect is the ultimate stage of human kind. However, Guy Hoffman (almost) obliterate this concept. And in one of my favourite talks he makes us reinvent our definition of what we should aim. Maybe we shouldn’t only spend all our time striving for getting better and better but also realize what we have achieved and how mistakes are important. So after this talk (I’ve seen it one year ago, thus I don’t quite remember it deeply) I stopped asking for me to be perfect but to move towards that goal always looking to the errors has opportunities for improvement and for new ways of thinking. More than this I comprehended that emotions are needed for arriving perfection…and you, what have you learnt?

Life would had no meaning if we erased emotions, it would had no purpose. I wish you all the best and seek for your “soul” everyday 😀
