Sole technology might be the technology of choice, but it’s the technology that gives us the strength and the freedom to do what we want to do. By applying it to the way we do things we create a lot more things. If I have a great idea to add to my own home, and I have a great idea to add to my own bathroom, I can build much more things than just a simple kitchen sink.
Sole technology isn’t so much an invention as it is the way in which we apply it. We apply it to the way we do things because we want to make our own things, and we want to make our own things because of the freedom it provides. If we apply it to the way we do our business, there’s a much greater chance that the results we get are the ones we wanted.
Sole technology is when you don’t build things around technology. This is the same concept as our earlier idea of “self-architecting” our own home. We only build things that we find beneficial to our own lives and the lives of those around us. Most people who do this create a “house of tech” that is as big as they want and is free from any interference from the outside world.
Sole technology, in this case, is when you are building a home that is big enough to house all of your technology. In this way we build our own personal mini-worlds. The main thing is that we are really building technology so that we can use it for our own purposes.
We’re currently building our new home using the same technology that we use for our primary businesses, and it’s not just because we’re in a hurry. We’re building small tech hubs that we can just hop in and go to, so we can get back to our primary business activities much quicker.
I have to laugh. Most people think it’s because they can’t afford the massive house and the big mortgage, and it’s because they can’t afford to buy a ton of high-tech toys. But in fact, most people have the same amount of tech that they would need to build their own home, which makes it really easy.
When I first started talking about how we could buy a lot of high-tech toys, my wife commented that she wishes we could just buy a bunch of computers and a bunch of iPads. But then, she said something that made me laugh. She said, “Oh, that’s right! You’re lazy. It’s because you can’t afford all of the high-tech toys.
The truth is I have no idea how much tech we need to build our new home. All of the tech we know about, we will never need. But it is still nice to dream about the gadgets and the new technology that could be in our possession and building our new home.
So I have no idea, but I bet that the next time I mention a tech gadget, someone will roll their eyes and say, “I need that.
