Simple Living-High Thinking People are having luxuries unlimited that come in latest modern gadgets like cell phones, laptops, plasma TVs, comfortable household gadgets, modern luxuries apartments, club memberships etc. Anything new in the market is bound to be with the consumer. Inspire of all these facilities, the common man has no time to devour these luxuries which he spent with his hard earned money. The trauma does not end here. He also takes perks like hospital expenditure with the fat income he earns. The amount of miseries he faces stand nowhere in front of the salary he acquires. What is the thing he is missing on? A simple living. This is related to high thinking in the context that his happiness is not bound on materialistic things rather than internal peace and satisfaction.
The major backfire issues that trouble a person are:
Varieties unlimited: There is no dearth of varieties in the market. One tends to buy an affordable house but lands up buying an inexpensive one. Same goes with modern gadgets. A purely means of communication like a mobile has uncountable varieties and tempting offers to choose from. The buyer wants to get the best which later burns a hole in his pocket. Similarly a mode of transport lures the poor consumer to take home the best car. All these options require a huge amount of money. A person tends to get exhausted paying the bills through EMI or down payment. This mode of life curbs his appetite for happiness or indulging in the product that he chose with so much adoration. The common man later becomes unhappy and burned out. Although choices and varieties make our life seem simpler but in reality they only confuse the buyer. It makes him lose priorities that are driven with variety and not quality.
Over consumption: A large group of the urban population is lured by fabulous offers and discounts which markets offer. This tends to overuse their credit cards and land them into buying things that are later useless or worthless. Things like these keep piling on in the house and soon lead to disturbed energy in the house.
Over-population: In spite of education becoming an important factor, the urban man never inhibits in multiplying. This leads to over extended large families. They surmount to large expense in the house with only one person to depend on financially.
Undoubted careers: With a plethora of job options in the market, no one really minds climbing the corporate ladder by job switching. This leads to job burnout and extreme un-satisfaction in one's work. Such was not the case decades back where one was employed at a place and left at the time of retirement.
Loss of connectivity: With job postings on the rise due to promotions, people do not prefer to stay at one place for long. Therefore they tend to move to different places along with their families. This leads to loss of connectivity with friends and relatives.
Mode of communication: With changing times, mode of communicating with others has also changed. People no longer prefer to communicate through letters that add personal touch and take time. Rather they would simply write SMS or send e-mails which according to them would be quicker and faster. This cuts down personalized touch.
Techdriven: A person may take up the latest techno tool in the market but his only role would be to complete the purpose. Today's technology is surmounted with add on features that tend to do anything than to solve the actual purpose. To talk to a person in the health care center, you are greeted by an automated machine rather than a person. Your problem is left unattended to and you are in the same problem. So has technology made our lives easier or more difficult.
Focus: it is important to focus on you objective. Trying to juggle many things will lead to no accomplishments in hand, the result becoming extreme burnout and no positive result.
