It must be a terrible consequence of being human: the inability to never be satisfied with what we have. Its probably the human trait that has made us what we are today, the most dominant species on this Earth.
The beginnings of the first BBQ...
Where would we be if the cavemen of old had given up in the quest for fire the moment things got tough? Rubbing two sticks together takes tremendous effort and time (believe me, i've tried and failed). It would have been so easy to continue being satisfied with cold, raw meat rather than take the trouble to discover fire.
Where would we be if Thomas Edison had given up the "electric light" problem, being satisfied with the oil lamp? After a couple of hundred thousand failures, you would have expected the guy to give up, but he didn't and the human race is richer because of it.
A product of a 100,000 failures
The list goes on and on, but all share the same principle: driven by the human need to improve our condition, all have gone on to achieve great things that have shaped the future of the human race. Where would be if we were satisfied with what we have?
That's the exact problem that i have. When i received my Streamyx broadband connection on Saturday, i was on top of the world for like... 2 minutes. That's it. From the 3rd minute onward, i wanted more speed, more power, more, more, more!
Just like when i first got my job at PETRONAS - i thought that this was all i needed. From the 2nd month onwards, i was already planning my next move. I wanted more, more and more!
There's nothing wrong with wanting more, is there?
