Things you want aren't always a necessity

Week after week nominal inventions are made. Until that one invention is made that people go crazy for, it is then the inventor hits the jackpot in remuneration. Finding the right thing to invent is hard enough to do; making it efficient is the hardest part to accomplish. By finding something that people think they “need,” is when the inventor will strike gold.

Many students can go to a prestigious school for four years, but fail in making a steady income. With inventions, the middle ilk of society can strike any idea, and become rich. Making a small placard advertising an invention can draw people to the product. Writing diatribe text such as; “If you don’t have one, you don’t have a life,” can make people feel like they “need” to have the new invention.

Inventions can be fortuitous, in which the inventor made by mistake. This can happen with ease by not having every integral piece of an invention. Then having the inhibition of parts can lead to having a brand new invention. One example can be missing one white sock, and then combining the missing sock with a black sock. Mix and matching socks could become the latest fad, and having a patent on your own brand of mix and match socks could make you rich.

People can be incoherent in making purchases, and not know the reason why they bought something when returning from the store. These impulse buys are what an inventor strives for when making their product. This is a perfect example of something that is a “want.” People need to decide whether they need something, or just want it.

Don’t be the person that has to have every new I-pod that comes out. They were made to listen to music, now they are phones and gaming devices. Who really needs every feature on an I-pod, and people don’t even know how to use all of those features. The point is, food and shelter is a necessity in today’s culture, not a hummer and I-pods. Establish what you need before making a purchase next time you go to the store. Maybe even invent your own product, and strike it rich.
