This is usually said before a person has a conversation with another person, person, or thing. The first step in making a decision, or any decision for that matter, is to consider, or consider the options that are available. This means thinking about the pros and cons of the options that are being examined.
In the same way that we think about what we want, or what we need, we can think about what we want, or need, in terms of what other people want, or need. When we’re considering options for our lives we can consider their pros and cons. We can consider the pros and cons of the options that are available.
For example, you may be considering getting a new stereo because you haven’t listened to it for a while. You have no need for it at the moment, and if you get it you’re sure to enjoy your new home entertainment system. But consider the option of getting a second hand one as well, as you’d have to buy a new stereo for it, and you may save the money.
The same thing applies when you are considering buying a home. Youre not going to buy a new house if you dont like the way your present one is used. You may like the way your current home is used, but if you get a new one youll be saving a lot of money. The same goes for communication too. If youre too lazy to make a new communication, youd be missing out on the benefits.
There are some of us who don’t see the point of buying a new house unless we are seriously contemplating selling it. But we wouldn’t want to run the risk of buying something we simply wouldnt be able to afford, so we’ll happily pay extra for a new one that we can use. Some of us still have a place for a second hand home, and some of us are willing to pay extra for it.
My brother is a real estate agent in town and he always says things like “if all else fails, you can always go back to the old place and live with the animals” which I’ve always thought was a pretty sweet sentiment. But when I try to explain this to my wife, she just laughs and says stuff like “that’s pretty much the same thing as saying, ‘you can always go back to the old place and live with the animals'”.
It’s not the same thing, but the idea that you can always return to your old home and live there is pretty darn close to the idea that you can always return to your old job and work for a second hand home. Just think about it. If your old job isn’t the same as your old home, then you can never return to the old job.
We were talking to a friend last week who works at an office building and he said that once you are an employee, you can never go back to your old job. He said that if you are a teacher for instance, you have a lot of tenure that you can never get back. Even if you have a job that is the same job for a second, it doesnt matter because you cant just go back to the old job.
Just like you cannot go back to your old job, you cannot go back to the old communication system. There is a limit to how much communication you can have in any one day, month, or year. The Internet is no different.
