Daily Nugget of Gold 1775

Children astound me with their inquisitive minds. The world is wide and mysterious to them, and as they piece together the puzzle of life, they ask ‘Why?’ ceaselessly.” – John C. Maxwell

Daily Nugget of Gold 1775

A Solution is Close at Hand

Let’s begin with one of our favorite quotes, this one is from Ed Beckley, “There’s always a solution.” It’s a simple quote, but more than a quote, it’s an attitude to adopt for success. Let’s look again at Thomas Edison and the light bulb. Edison believed so strongly that something would work, he stood by over 10,000 attempts to find it- that didn’t. This story is well known, but now that we live in the modern age, there are actually many, many more ways to create light safely and effectively that we’ve discovered since then.

Edison’s invention which ran electricity through a particular filament making it glow was so awesome that it was the gold standard in lighting for many years, but we’ve found better ways of performing the same task, more efficient ways, many of them. We’ve not nearly reached the end of innovation in lighting, either. How many ways are there to produce light? There could be 10,000 of those, too.

There was a way to produce light that was demonstrated thousands of years ago, and it didn’t involve flames, fire or significant amounts of heat. What? You never heard of it? Sure you have, we said it was demonstrated, but we didn’t say that mankind invented it. It’s fireflies or lightning bugs. The technology existed for a very long time, we just didn’t discover what it was for a while. Starting in the 1960s, people began patenting various forms of lighting using this technology. Today, we call them “glow sticks” although they can come in many different shapes and styles.

Edison’s motivation for producing a reliable light source which would help improve safety in the home for millions of people wasn’t based on altruistic attitudes, but rather he understood that a profit could be made with such a great improvement over dangerous candles and lanterns. There’s nothing wrong with that, we benefit greatly from the advances in technology just the same.

Keep in mind when you are faced with a very difficult dilemma that there really is, “always a solution”, and in fact, there are always many. We just need to be open to receive them.

Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves

How can I keep in mind that there are many solutions and I need to have an open mind about that?”
