What If We All Had One Job

Updated on November 8, 2017

To Make Ourselves Useful

With no wishes or wants

We are a tool

To help mankind

There are problems all over the world

Our job is to find a problem we can fix

Our whole life is dedicated to making that problem disappear

If that problem creates another problem

It is our job to solve that problem too

So in the meantime we can have fun enjoying our life

Traveling around the world

Meeting people and helping them solve their own problems

Every person has to pick their own problem

It can take years to find the right problem

Once you pick your problem it is yours for life

The solution is yours too

You can inquire for help

If people choose to help it is up to them

Maybe they will

Maybe they won't

Every day you go to work

Just like a real job

Discussing the issues and the development

People all over the world come to you for answers

There is a lot of responsibility but also great pride

At the age of twenty one you have to decide

What problem you pick

The search is on

Checking the data bases around the world

To see if someone else has picked your area of expertise

If no one has

You get a problem in a gold lettering typed with your name on it

Dated and from that day on your problem is your life's long ambition

So with no time to waste

I have picked my own problem

It is how to make people think

So many people don't want to make any effort

They just live their life on auto pilot

I have seen how they get easily bored

Even the greatest things and the happiest moments only last a short time

I believe somewhere in their life they stopped trying

Going through the motions

If you find yourself

In a fog

In a daze

Not sure what to do next

Give me a ring

I am here twenty four seven

To do my best

Think, think, think

That is my life long dream

      Gypsy Rose Lee I think as we get older and begin to live our life we forget what we can give to the world and do so much more taking. If we are reminded daily we will accomplish so much more with so much less. Thank you so much for reading and finding ways to make our world better for everyone not just a select few. Michael-Milec When anyone devotes time and energy to any problem surprising things happen. With bigger problems like cancer, obesity we could work in groups and see how much progress can be made. The people are the experts not big companies. Give credit where credit is do. Are there any problems that you would love to take a crack at? Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

      Uncompromising awesome. You have exposed basic responsibility for every person to learn living life without creating problems - as I understand it. some problems are very difficult to solve ( Cancer/ obesity ...) I love life without problems. Working on "problem free" life daily. Then again if a problem comes across my path most of the time I let it go...

      All of us being totally different and giving the world different offerings is what makes it all so exciting.
