Understanding culture is something many people dismiss. Yet very profound nowadays. In this overview, you will get a different perception of culture.
Have you ever traveled abroad?
Chances are that you had. Even if you haven’t there still different cultures in your city, in your country.
With this travel hype nowadays, chances are that you have probably visited at least one foreign country. Ok good, so what, you might ask.
The Modern Construct
Culture is indeed a topic that is getting more significant this century, compared to our evolution through humanity.
This is due to the continuous improving globalization. Geographical spaces start to shrink and lose sense over the large scheme of things. Planes are flying from one continent to another in a matter of hours. Calls and texts are instantly received on the opposite side of the world. And new technology like 3D emerges constantly, providing us with the extraordinary ability to dematerialized objects and to reconstruct them again.
Thereby we engage in many ways much more with people entitled to another culture.
It is bewildering how quickly boundaries are being erased with technology, like pencil from a canvas.
Shrinking these boundaries is freeing people of living only in their county for life.
Traveling is getting accessible. So people travel more and more often. Corporations start to open their doors for every race and nationality. But what is missing?
How Perspective Changes Everything?
We are not opening ourselves to explore them fully. We are missing personal skills. I count myself in that category certainly, trying to excel. I have worked in a multicultural environment and it is indeed complicated. People are judging others for their actions and words, but that is what it looks on the surface. The root cause is culture. We have this more like judgemental behavior. And it is not the right place to be, I have been there as well.
The key is perspective.
Culture is something that technology can not change in flash of light. There is no application that can solve this issues. At least there are no evidence of this happening soon. However these issues are problems of diversity and differences.
I believe they are universal principles that are equally important for every race and nation.
Such as appreciating other human beings and accepting them. A broader idea you might get on those, listed by the United Nations.
That is becoming more and more evident as I am traveling to from a country to country. But it is important to stay for a while and connect with the national culture. There are enormous rewards for us if we succeed in managing these complicated relations. It is not a secret that different nations have what economic calls “unfair advantage”.
It entails that every country has more from one resource than other, cost for certain goods are low compared in other geographic regions. And the same applies to other cognitive skills and personality traits. Some are better leaders, where other solve problems faster.
And the sum up is our modern world today. That we make it far more diverse by living simultaneously together and we are better off.
Sharing is a requires at least two sides, but it can be practiced and between more parties.
Sharing is a free and sharing can save us. Peace and happiness multiply when is being shared.
Let’s give it a try.
