My recent thoughts published in the Sun, about how we are number-obsessed, seeking just to acquire and obtain quantity, because we aren’t taught about the quality of life (sorta in a nutshell):
We are taught from very young that we need to have goals, usually this is translated into “You have to score in exams”. We sometimes learn along the way how to perform and our performance is always quantifiable. It’s all about the numbers. Nowadays, popularity is even measured by numbers: the number of likes on your post; the number of followers on Instagram; the number of retweets.
What do you think? Are we taught about the quality of life? Or is our life all about the numbers and the quantity of things we acquire? Tell me in the comments!
