Want*Need*(ing)

4 09 2008

The fact that we are always asked about what we want usually makes us get skewed vision….

Leaving Uni, you will most prolly hear a few peers say that they want a form of employment that will allow them to travel, or get a company ride, or even allow them access to the boss…

Translation

Be a driver/ be a driver/ be a driver or at least the secretary

Hehehehe

Meeting up with peeps on a longish week, you will again most prolly hear a few peers say they want more time to do blah-zi-blah/ spend too much time at work/ and then some

You will most prolly hear the same set of peeps saying they want this and that, but when it hits them in the face, some sort of hesitation takes charge

There’s a very distinct line between wants and needs…

Usually, people’s wants come first, and the life long devotion to getting that sexy phone, or that light blue range rover, or that sexy top with matching shoes, what about that kewl new laptop, and that amazingly shiny Canon or Olympus digi-cam that has everyone looking it instead of taking pics of the beautiful bride…

The list could go on

back2basics

If we just take a moment to observe what we really need…

Y’know… the shoes that can stand a few months of Kampala’s hard knock streets, a coupla pair of jeans that can face your (read my) semi-empty wallet, and two basik tops, with that killah one that will make whatshisname in Sales offer to buy you lunch…

Then eventually we start to worry less about our needs and then focus on our wants

I am amused…. at nada…
