The above excerpt is from Matt Haig’s book “Reasons to Stay Alive,” and there is a lot of truth in it.
Business thrives and flourishes on one main human trait: dissatisfaction.
Not only we are living in a “competitive” world but we are living in a world of “excess.”
Our wardrobes, our houses, and our garages are overflowing with “stuff” we have been collecting which we wanted so much at the time of buying and now don’t even remember that it is collecting dust still in its original packaging.
If we could be contented with less, economy might doom, but we will save the planet.
