The Art of Building and Rebuilding
Do you ever had that feeling of making something, and in a couple of weeks or months (some even days) you realized you’re not satisfied with it, you go ahead and rebuild it? It happens all the time. There is just no satisfaction or contentment once you know how to build something, you are very confident you can rebuild it and make it better than the last.
Building things is very common to us. Curiousness often gets in the way and we go ahead and modify what we build.And from there, we learn something. And as time goes by, making things has been very challenging to us. Like this blog for an instance. Making a blog for the first time is challenging. You want it to be perfect. The design, the content, the pictures. And once you’ve realized you’ve done it, you go ahead and do some revisions. A little blue, maybe. A little wider for the content, more pictures. Until you saw that the blog you’ve created has totally become a new one. And you’ve become obsessed with it. That’s how we are.
Same goes for the film makers, I believe. Aren’t you a bit curious about remakes? How many Spider man versions have you seen? How many Superman films have been recreated. We are never satisfied. We are hungry for innovations, we constantly want to build and rebuild. We always believe that this time would be better. But frankly, it does not happen very often. We crave for constant change yet we are never satisfied.
On the positive side, making things made us smarter. Rebuilding things makes us wiser. We learn from our mistakes and that’s how we got in this age. You wouldn’t have LCDs or SmartTV’s if not for the companies that wants to make a difference. You might still be using the same old box that is simply impossible to move around. Go ahead and take your chance in building something. Then you’ll know the feeling that you’ll want to rebuild it sooner or later.
