Google your mind before you Google the internetNowadays if we are looking for an answer to any question or solution to any problem the most simple solution seems to be Google. Even if you ask someone his answer is likely to be "Why don't you google it?" Google is considered like God who knows everything and rightly so.
I think life has become easy due to Google and it is easy to find the answers and solutions with a click of the keyboard and it saves a lot of time to search for the answers if we do not know it.
But are we using Google when really needed or have we made it a habit? Do we give our brain enough jolt to find the answers and solutions before we go to Google? Has Google made us lazy to think and apply our brains as answers are readily available so who will think so much? These are the questions which need to be considered in this Google age.
I think some people these days are over dependant on Google and try to search for every small answer in Google directly without even giving an attempt to think first. It is giving rise to Copy/paste culture. The mind needs to be exercised to keep it sharp. If you do not apply it much then it tends to rust. In a way overuse of Google can be injurious to mind I feel as many people do not allow it to work hard to find the answers. This can reduce our thinking capacity.
Before the Google age, we all remember how we used to find the answers during our studies. We use to think on and on and if still failed asked our friends or parents who in turn used to think hard to solve the problem. But I don't think this is the scenario today.
Let us Google our mind first for the solutions before we Google on the internet. Maybe answer is lying in our mind only. After getting the answer we can always refer Google if needed for better and more varieties of answers.
Let Google be our helper but let us not become slaves to Google.
