When did this happen ? When did we become , as a society become so lazy ? When did we decide in the long run that it is all too much trouble ? The way we do things , the way we talk , the way we write , the way we spell , so many things we have become so lazy doing , it is a nightmare sometimes just to work out what in the world we are dealing with . There is hardly a thing anymore that we do that we do not try to find a shortcut for , so many things we only do half as well as we should because we have just become too lazy , and you know it has all happened so slowly that we did not even see it happen . We seem now to have no pride in achievement , or in how well we do things anymore , it is such a shame .
How many times have we tried cutting corners with jobs we are doing only to find out that it didn’t work ? Then we have to go back to the start and do it all over again, whereas if we had done it right first time it would be finished , no need to do it a second time , by having to do it a second time too it often takes longer and costs more money than if we had just done it without trying to shortcut. Not to mention the frustration of the extra time and money we have now wasted by trying to cut corners , 1 day we will learn it is best to do it the right way in the beginning , until we do it will cost us more every time because shortcutting does not work very often .Even then results may vary so it is still not worth the effort of shortcutting.
Have you ever listened to someone talk and just shook your head wondering what they just said ? I know I have often because today people have become so lazy they chop off their words to such an extent it takes a few tries to work out what they just said . It is just as bad when some people write , man the times I have had to sit and read a thing 3 or 4 times just to work out what was written is amazing . Chopped off words , made up words , things that I do not even class as words have crept into our language and our writing that just make no sense to anyone who has learned to spell and speak proper English . All of this just proves how lazy we have become that we let it happen and done nothing to stop it , it makes reading so frustrating at times as you sit and try to decipher what you are reading it can take ages when it should only take a few mins. As for the spelling that goes with this , it just makes me want to scream the way people spell, they obviously never took classes or they would know how to spell .
What i want to know is why people who do all this shortcutting , this I can do it better and quicker start deciding they knew better than the people who did it right in the first place ? When did they ( for instance ) decide that words spelled correctly were not good enough and they had to start re writing them ? Some of the so called words they use instead are just horrible , like ” totes ” I mean what in the world does that even mean ? Then there is 1 of the so called words I hate the most ” amazeballs ” just horrific to someone who learned to read and write and spell correctly , there are many more examples but you get the drift it just makes me so mad to see and hear this kind of rubbish. Surely it takes more effort to screw up the real words by thinking about them and changing them than to just use them the right way ? Amazing … sigh …..
Just how far are we going to let this type of thing go on ? Will we never decide enough is enough and make people do things right ? Will people never learn that taking these shortcuts is just not the way to go , that near enough is not good enough ? When will we get back our pride in what we do ? Remember how good it was to do something and get it right , no matter how many times we had to do it over ? I always found it invigorating when I got something right it always made me feel good , seems there is none of that these days , people just in too much of a hurry to get wherever it is they want to go , so hence all the shortcuts . They do not realise that just to take a few mins more to do something right first time is by far the best way to go no matter what you are doing .
Just love the feeling of doing something, getting it right the first time , it give a sense of accomplishment that for me at least cannot be surpassed , love it , so always try to do it right first time. If you put in the effort to do your research before you actually set to the task in hand then getting it right the first time is so easy . I love doing research love finding out things as I do have curiosity , I want to know all about whatever it is before I start actually doing whatever it is , helps too to make sure you have the time available so there is no pressure to try the shortcuts that more often than not end up as no shortcut at all.
I don’t care what you think of me! Unless you think I’m awesome – in which case, you’re right! Carry on…
