How would you make a difference with $1 million?
I will invest it in designing a watch that measures the quality of time uniquely to each and every of its users. Why? Because time is the very container that holds and dictates all of our efforts and I believe we have an outdated approach and perception towards it. (Yes, we have been at this method for a really really long time!) Sir Ken Robinson got it really right when he said --- "We have to recognize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process; it’s an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development. All you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish." If we can accept a very simple fact that we function differently at different hours only can we begin replying time with actions that make sense and not merely to satisfy the system. It is that simple. Earth didn't come prepackaged with the 9-5 system, so why are we spending our time like it did? I would like to suggest a different approach to time-keeping which I gathered and interpreted from Sir Ken Robinson's words; that our very best effort is still secondary to the environment its positioned in. And time is a crucial element of the environment which we often overlook. As our world problems grow, we really need to view and tackle it from a perspective that considers the tools that we could and should have, and not only the ones that we have at the moment. As the good old saying by Bernard Baruch goes --- "If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." If we can design a time system that compliments and brings out the best in people, we are essentially laying the foundation for more amazing skills and great minds to grow on.
