A tool is something that helps you achieve a goal. When you become obsessed with the tool for it’s own sake you are no longer working on a goal, but are now serving that tool. It doesn’t matter if it is the car you drive, the computer you work on, or the body you live in. If you are exclusively focused on the maintenance of those things then you are living a stunted life. Never lose sight of what you are doing with these tools, why you have them in the first place. Are you using them or are you simply an agent to maintain them?
