Have you ever noticed the rather stimulating nature of people, recently? A book I read recently has given a new name for this type of behavior. Not just the 'Millenials', as it's become popular so much lately, but now trying to call this the "Immediates". By the way, my spell checker flagged this as a new word or bad grammar since it's more of an adjective and not a noun that could be used as a name.
I wonder if this is what they call ADD. Technically this stands for attention deficit disorder, and it's similar to ADHD, which is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. I remember back in grade school (elementary school) that certain students who can't sit still; they talk too much, they answer the teacher too much, they get up and leave before class is over, or they just crack jokes and become comedians.
I was told this is called ADD. This was also called hyper active. The kids deeply resented the label or diagnosis because they were afraid they would have to take medication or be in a special class. The truth is that many of them could not be in any class at all, but had to leave school completely, for some unknown reason.
There are a lot of things that can be done about hyper activity or ADD, but usually, it takes someone who cares or is smart enough to notice. It takes a decent education to help children learn or to help people learn when they are children. Childhood is that stage when we learn so it is important to teach a child continuously and thoroughly in their childhood years so that they remember this throughout life.
As our friend and journalist Michael Moore says, we live in a fast food nation. I know that some people do not, but we are in a city (I am) and we (myself and others around me) are generally in the working class. We have jobs, earn income, and pay food and housing. Why does food have to be fast? Is there something better about getting things done quickly? Can we get more things done if we skip the details, and attention to detail, such as health standards, cleaning, quality, and even attitude? What is it worth, or what is anything worth, if it's just thrown together and served up quickly? One thing to bring up regarding work is that economics proves that doing more and doing it quickly actually reduces the value, and profits are lower. Maybe America does not know that yet.
Speed seems like a lot of fun in this world, where kids play sports, and many are fans of very fast sports cars. One thing to bring up regarding work is that economics proves that doing more and doing it quickly actually reduces the value, and profits are lower. This applies the "Principle of diminishing returns" in economics (http://www.dictionary.com/browse/diminishing-returns). Maybe America does not know that yet. On the other hand, there are true craftsman that I have personally seen, who pay attention to very fine details and work for a long time to build a much better product. The old saying, "hardwood takes much longer to grow than pine".
