THE EAR-PLUGS

One of the early products, sourced in the factory to prove INDUSTRIAL UPCYCLING is possible was a small plastic spool from threats. The company produces large quantities after sewing parts for car interiors.

Every single day hundreds to thousands end up in garbage containers

I took some with me to my office and start to “play” and visualize what can an obsolete item be used or utilized for, without crashing it into granulate.

It was several years before defining 6R METHODOLOGY was introduced and it took me two months before I realized that I was so blind not to see so many possibilities.

One of them was to use the SPOOL to hear better

Nine years later more and more ads on TV or on the INTERNET are visualizing how great is to use earplugs. In the streets, more and more people walk with their earplugs plugged in not to miss a second of ???

Of what?

MUSIC, PODCAST, AUDIOBOOK, TRANSCRIBED WEBSITE, CALL

Enclosed in the perfection of the virtual world

Next sense converted

After the eyes, are covered with displays and virtual headsets, the next sense would be dedicated to the digital world, #METAVERSE

Without eyes, we don´t see

Without ears, we don´t hear

What remains is the TASTE, TOUCH, and SMELL

COVID took many SMELL and TASTE away, they have survived but as many said their life become somehow 2-dimensional.

TOUCH IS THE LAST WHO GUARD THE HUMANITY

If we look at the senses from a different perspective we can say that Watching and Hearing can deliver indirect information. Tasting, Smelling, Feeling, and Touching is only personal experience.

Just a day before yesterday I met again, after three years Martin Roedl young man whose work is with me for the last 3 years serving as a background of my

notebook computer

Martin is a business coach and a great photographer, so as E-MOTIONEER same as me enjoying the ride on an electric unicycle.

We have a great discussion in which he mentioned that he switched his original big professional camera for a small one which, to my surprise does only Black & White images.

I was fascinated by his explanation of the manufacturing process, so as did the description of the photography itself. To summarize, he said that the lack of other colors helps to deliver high-quality photography with just two colors and their shades.

This reminds me strongly of the POWER OF TOUCH and the reason why it is so impactful if in your hands or the hands of the companies, clients, or partners.

Seven days ago I delivered my keynote speech at the GLOBAL IMPACT INVESTMENT SUMMIT 2022

Collecting the same response as I do collect for all my keynotes, speakers and audience are surprised and open for discussion, after delivery. The reasons for discussion are different but all remind the NEED FOR TOUCH.

I am happy that every single keynote delivers the same need, waking up the desire for touch, not money

THE CORE TASK OF THE DAY

TAKE YOUR EYES FLAPS DOWN and UNPLUG YOUR EARS, WATCH, LISTEN AND TOUCH, WAKE UP HUMAN AGAIN

Have a nice time free of waste and wasting in all its forms, stay safe and free
