An interesting phenomenon known as the life of a light switch. In a somewhat parallel argument to the “if a tree falls down and no one is around, does it make a sound?” argument, consider the life of a room. In this case a business, that turns the light on when the store opens and leaves the light on until the store closes. Life is what happens in between the switch of the light.
It’s interesting to think about when I wake up in the morning, one of the first things I do is turn on a light and one of the last things I do before bed is to turn off my light. The question of what happens between those switches is interesting. It is even more interesting when considering that for a light to go on there has to be electricity, there has to be other things involved (a bulb, wiring, etc), and there has to be an action (changing the switch). In our life how often do we have the things necessary to live life but don’t always have an action to take or don’t have the electricity to make it happen? Taking it a step further if a light is more complicated than your life, are you doing enough? Before I go to bed, I want to ask myself that question… what happened between the switches?
