The ability to instantly connect with another person anywhere, at any time, transforms our expectations.
The price is we get really annoyed when someone doesn’t pick up his phone. Or she doesn’t answer our text on the same day.
It’s remarkable that we can order almost anything on Amazon and have it in 2 days.
The price is we get (and give) gifts that fall short of expectations.
GIft cards offer a way out, but they ultimately lack the charm. Risk-free giving, like risk-free living, is an oxymoron.
The motif of our times is infinite options.
The thing is, some people don’t want the option we’re offering. (The morons!)
Some people always prefer the inferior but familiar. They just don’t get it . There are people who still eat on paper plates.
There’s no way out of disappointment. You will disappoint and others will disappoint you.
It’s included in our ticket to connect with others, make our art and share it. Your being remarkable disappoints some, delights others. Your being safe does the same, so why not go out on that limb?
