The Evolution of Work
Throughout the ages men and women have searched for ways to ease the burden of
work in their lives. From building homes and skyscrapers, to doing laundry by hand,
there has been a steady improvement in the working conditions and the working
methods used by humanity.
People used to spend their entire days hunting, foraging, planting, preparing and
working from dusk till dawn simply in order to have food and a roof over their heads.
It may seem as though you do the same thing today, but you’d be wrong.
No longer must we hunt down our own food, dress it and preserve it through long
winter months in order to stay alive. With the touch of a button our laundry is
washed and dried and even made to smell terrific. We’re working with our brains
instead of our brawn, for the most part, and it’s improved our lives.
It no longer takes months or even years to travel from one place to another. We can
fly or drive or take trains, buses, and don’t forget the cruise ships.
Which brings me to another point: with the invention of so many things to make our
lives easier, we have been given the gift of leisure time. We’re 4 free to travel, to
paint, read, and entertain, to do pretty much anything we want to do with our time
when we’re not working.
Since now that we’re working smarter, doesn’t it make sense that we should also be
able to work from the comfort of our own home rather than spending our lives in a
cubicle farm? Of course it does, and I’m going to show you how!
