Good intentions are not enough. Good actions are required as well.
Many of the things we do, day to day, are the same. We like to think we’re special and creative, but I think it’s important to see how robotic we are as well.
In a similar vein as to why all people only act selfishly, I’d like to suggest the following:
Anything that anyone does is about them. It’s never about you.
You are selfish. So is the person next to you. We are all selfish.
Don’t believe me?
Think about it – everything that you do is done because you are hoping to satisfy some kind of need or desire. Acts of selfishness surround us. Some are obvious and some are not.
Knowledge isn’t power. Rather, it is the only part of the equation.
Too many people (especially smart ones) run around accumulating knowledge. This can often be the solution for tasks like how to use certain functions on your new mobile phone or how to fix a computer problem.
