Hey Google

“How do I bake Pecan pie?”

And sure enough, in 0.53 seconds 24,700,000 results come up.

Some of us are old enough to remember that before the internet and before Google, the answer to a question was more than just a click away. You used to have work much harder to find the answers.

In our culture of one-click shopping and one-click googling, we think that the answer to complex problems should also be one click away.

We have to learn to be more patient when trying to answer life’s most pressing questions. Because the answer to these questions are not on Google. They require more thought and more reason along with more research.

If the answer is only a couple clicks away, it’s probably not that interesting of a problem that needs to be solved.

[A note about Google: Without more thought and intent, eventually, the servant becomes the master and the master the servant.]
