Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had an interest in inventions. I guess you could call me a pessimist. I’m one of those people that likes to find the problem in just about everything. It’s not that I’m really negative are anything… Maybe the better way to explain it is that I’m always looking for ways to improve things.
First, I always ask myself how something works. Then I examine what problem whatever I’m looking at is solving. What is the problem and how are they solving it? What did they do to solve it? And then I ask how can it be made better?
If I wasn’t already in the job and career that I have now, I really wouldn’t mind being an inventor. I don’t know if it sounds really dorky or geeky, but I would love to be able to solve problems by designing and creating gadgets and inventions to make the world a better place.
One of the things that gets me really excited, is checking out new inventions and ideas. The world is an amazing place at this time in history, where the rate that inventions are being made and breakthroughs being discovered his mind blowingly fast.
I used to subscribe to a magazine were I would receive weekly or monthly emails about new breakthroughs and inventions. I remember opening up those he knows and there would always be a list of over 10 new inventions that were incredible. Every time I would get one of those emails it would blow me away how much was happening on a regular basis. And to think all that stuff was going on as the rest of us go about our average routine daily lives.
Frankly, by the impression I got from those regular emails, I’m surprised we’re not living on Mars yet. I guess all these new discoveries take a lot of time to fully develop and make it out into the real world.
Here’s the link to the magazine that I use to subscribe to:
In fact there’s a “free subscriptions” button up in the top right.
I’m not affiliated with them in any way and not necessarily promoting them, but heck, why not sign up to get cool emails with lists of neat breakthroughs in technology on a regular basis?
