We don’t appreciate the privileges that technology offers us.
Thanks to technology, we can listen to the CEO of a mega-successful business and get valuable insights.
Thanks to technology, we can expose ourselves to ideologies that are different from what we’ve been taught throughout life.
Thanks to technology, we can have access to the best teachers in the world who are experts in their particular fields.
Modern means like podcasts, YouTube videos, and online classes offer us one-on-one access to people who we may never see in real life.
For a moment, just think of what a huge privilege it is to have all these means. Just think of what our parents and grandparents would have given to have such a privilege.
Yet, despite having easy access to these amazing opportunities, we choose to spend our time watching meaningless TikTok videos, reels, social media posts, and whatnot.
