Here's a disgusting, yet quite accurate metaphor about life.
Often, we are facing situations similar to when we've just done our job in the bathroom, but we notice that for whatever reason, there is no toilet paper.
In real life, we often face similar situations. You are confronted with a mission-impossible condition but when you reach out to find a useful concept in your brain. You know, a concept of some sort to get you out unharmed and even - why not? - successful. You find none.
In these cases, as well as the toilet paper example. We need to be creative. As Steve Jobs once said, "to think differently!"
But thinking, these days, is something the online world is trying to repress.
After all, the more you think. The less you'll consume.
That's why the design of all apps is frictionless.
But what happened in unison with all the reduced friction is reduced thinking.
In one of my new posts, I look at something you might find helpful:
The 7 Types of Thinking (And Why You Need Them)
And while I don't want to know what you do when there's a shortage of paper. I do want to know your thoughts about the different ways of thinking. Feel free to share by replying...
