If It Ain't Broke........

"If it ain't broke.....don't fix it" (or so they say). I happen to disagree. Someone invented a perfectly good wheel a long time ago. Today, someone is making that same invention a whole lot better. So basically what I'm saying is: If it ain't broke......try to fix it anyway.

Some of you out there might be wondering what on earth I'm getting at.....the rest of you already have a pretty good grasp. In my humble opinion, there is no reason for stagnation or complacency. We live such short little lives. Why not make an impact? Why settle for less? Why not improve the quality of life for ourselves or for others? Why do less when we can do more? Why have that epiphany one moment before our death that lets us know that we have consciously wasted our lives? Why?

Sure, we might be content with the way things operate now. We might be content with our job, our finances, our tools, our toys, or the way our vehicles function.......and that is all well and good. But, did you ever stop to think about what it would be like if people were so "content" with everything generations ago? We would have nothing! We would have no modern conveniences and luxuries. Modern medicine probably would not exist. Science would be a joke. Our wheel would look more like a triangle or a square than a circle. Our quality of life would most likely be garbage. So what are we doing? Why are we so content? Let's make our impact as well.

So please, after you get done reading this, go out and look around. Find something that you could change for the better. Maybe you won't find that particular thing today or even tomorrow....but you will find it. And guess what? You will end up making an impact on someone's life. It doesn't matter if the impact is big or small. Any increase in quality of life is still an increase. If everyone does what you and I are about to do, we will see a lot of great new inventions and improvements come to life in the near future. So, just remember: If it ain't broke.....try to fix it anyway. Take care everyone!

See you next time!!!


  1. Nice sentiments. However, be careful you don't accidentally violate a patent!

  2. That's great advice and probably should have been a disclaimer at the end of my post. Thank you once again for the great contribution. Take care!
