Both of this are difficult separated from our daily activities.

But at the opposite of all advantage, the attendance of this peripheral have influenced life of social society. Why I said so? For example, if you are waiting for something in a place like market, school, office, mall,etc, the first target to play with is phone cell. By playing with your phone cell certainly you will not look around you or you will not try to speak each other. This situation maybe will make you be an egoist, progressively closed, and never paying attention around you, even you will not see your family or your mother behind you.

Why? Because your attention only concentrate with your cell
phone . And so does laptop. Many people when they back home, the first target is their laptop. More than anything else if you enthusiast of online business. Even when someone back home from office or school, directly they turn on their laptop for the first. Because of this, they have no time to their lovely family, l ovely wife and their children. They prefer sit in front laptop than share their time to his/her friend,his/her family, etc

So, please share your time correctly and don't let these objects influent your social and don't let these object influent you to uncare around you. Keep on touch with others although your laptop and your cell phone is used.

A person who works, studying, even which have pension, always has a target in their life. We can mention this target “Final Purpose”. Everyone has a different final purpose depend on their dream. It is not problem of how long or how short the time required to reach this target, definitive a final purpose is not keep handy. Barricade and problems always accompanying it and by dozens which fallen down even give up during its attainment process.

A final purpose sometimes sees not clear in the beginning till in the mid moment. Because of this “not clear” view, someone often chopp round and digress. Although they have started it better according to procedure. Its result? Final purpose lost!!. One of the most having an effect on this matter is mistake of procedure, beside the other factor.

Nowdays, many person reach a final purpose with good procedur in the beginning, but starting groggy and fallen down when they digress from procedure, including because of tempted by fascination and other opportunity.

If we imagine, a sure mountaineer is seldom see mountain top which wish to climb, but with an according procedure and never digressing although sometime there is a street turn, they still able to reach the top. And so an angler, he almost lost his fish that eat the bait, but because he follows and according a procedure, he able catch the fish.

So, a final purpose will be able to be reached by only a good procedure. If someone go out from the procedure, he will be lost his time, will feel tired and has more problems. This will break all the chances and it’s difficult to get it again. So to prevent the failure and get final purpose please according to procedure
