You know how in some households; kids have to do chores around the house? If they do their chores, the parents will give them an allowance at the end of the week.
America is the household.
Jobs are chores.
A paycheck is just an allowance.
That's basically a different way I started viewing society. Everyone thinks they're just making money or making someone else richer, but they are building and maintaining the environment. The same way kids do chores to help keep up the house. I don't think people actually care though.
We don't start businesses because we understand the chore. We just want to make money independently. Depending on the niche that you're talking about. That's why everything is becoming over saturated. We compete professionally to solve the same problems even if the solution isn't the best one. As long as the money is made.
It's really just bad businesses practices in my opinion. People thinking that competition is good for business when in reality it isn't. If you have companies that are competing within the same niche, but one company is the best for that niche, then why do the other companies exist? Why are they not working together instead to improve the product/service? Pride probably, amongst other things.
We will enjoy the allowance though.
I don't think there is a particular reason why we're here.
We are highly aware learning beings. We figure out why we're here by becoming aware of what we're capable of based off how the world around us works. I feel like this is part of the reason why we go to school.
People will tell you different, but it's based off what happens in the moment. Pictures, videos, etc are different ways you can capture the moment. Going back over memories is a good way to understand why you're here and what that means for the future.
If you want to know why you're here, live your life and find out. As long as you exist, you have no choice but to figure out why for yourself.
