When it comes down to it pressure shapes us, pressure applies direction to us, however it must never lead us, for that is a task for ourselves.
Only time tells whether we are capable of accepting our roles in life, yet not accepting, more realizing the opportunity to augment our personal endeavours; at the end of the day, your happiness, I'd say.
Great article--creativity exposes the intelligence you choose to express. And surely, the only way one can be deemed intelligent is by communicating intelligence in the first place, not merely in an artisanal domain, but more importantly in a general sense, in our everyday lives. Through every moment of being creative and doing what you love, the latter CAN be changed, but only if love for it has not been found yet.
Do you know what you love to do? My things Music, guitar specifically.
Have you ever needed to put down your phone when on hold with say, a customer care agent while they take their sweet time on the other end? Of course you have.
And of course, there are multiple instances of this situation where one cannot leave a call on speaker, ie. public place. As such, we should be able to visually see whether or not agent still has call on hold or not. Of course there is no information passed from the phone call to the dialer application to perform this action directly. One would need a different solution.
And as such, one could give permission on a per call basis to allow the audio to be sampled by say, #googlenow and proceed to analyze the conversation, while the user proceeds to do other tasks. With this information, a visual cue could tell the user whether or not the user was still on hold with the agent. Perhaps indicated by yellow-green drawed indicator on the dialer screen, and conditionally by an LED indicator that may or may not be built into the phone.
To reiterate, the visualization of "on hold" or "not on hold" would free up users hand for other tasks, ie. use of a desktop/laptop computer, or any other leisure/entertainment activity. Specifically, I'm thinking this dialer feature would appeal to a business user's lifestyle, or anyone that's interested in maximizing their time.
And if privacy is of further concern, one could limit the analysis to a time frame within the call set by the user. So if the worry lies within your confidential account information being processed by ie. Google Now, well, just make sure you toggle that "on hold or not" button at the appropriate times.
Surely, in the future, this feature could be used for the entire duration, with Google Now omitting any confidential information from it's depths of storage, however hard to tell what companies DO save and what they do not save these days.
Would love to hear your thoughts on the matter. How to improve on this concept, sketches of the implementation. Feel free to leave your feedback below!
Not only is a sustainable business the answer to entrepreneurial success, yet also critical to personal success too; one must be meticulous, and plan with all relevant possibilities in mind.
See the whole picture before it happens, map out your future, and reevaluate dynamically, holding the ultimate goal in front of your face all along the way. Be systematic. Be obsessive.
You know I've been thinking of eliminating my Drop Box for the obvious choice of Google Drive; but with lack of Linux support and the amount of space I have with dropbox, AND with Drop Box's continued commitment to protect my privacy, I still stand by you
