Sometimes I think that this generation is so obsessed with making things easier.
Everyday I am seeing new inventions that make simple, daily tasks easier, faster, or more efficient.
I think it’s because people are afraid of hard work. Perhaps people think that spending more time doing those things will take them away from life itself. I will say that smart thermostats are one of those inventions that I actually do believe in. When I was a kid, the thermostat in my family home was all the way down in the basement. We lived in a two-story home, so to travel that far downstairs anytime we wanted to adjust the thermostat was always a pain in my rear. This was especially annoying and difficult when temperatures were freezing and we wanted to turn up the heater. The other day I saw an ad for a smart thermostat and I couldn’t believe it! Apparently you can sync the thermostat right to an app on your phone and control the air conditioning and heater from there. You can even adjust your thermostat when you aren’t home, which is helpful for people with kids and families. I asked my buddy if he had heard of these things, and turns out he’s had a smart thermostat for years! I don’t know why I am just now hearing about them, but I immediately called up my HVAC technician to see if I could replace my normal thermostat with a smart one instead. This generation is pretty lazy, but I must admit that there are a few inventions that have been helpful to my life.
