There’s this saying that caught my interest. It says that when something dies, it does not really disappear. It just turns into another thing with a new and different purpose. The concept is just like that of energy. Science teaches us that energy does not disappear. It just turns into a different kind of energy.
When you apply this to the things around you, you will find that you can conserve much and create more. Take your car audio. What do we normally do when our car audio breaks down? We usually replace it with a newer, better version, right? What do we do with the defective car audio? Throw it away?
More often than not, that is indeed the case. The said car audio can still prolong its use and purpose in your life if you are willing to give it another life.
Try to fix it
It may not be totally hopeless. Usually, car owners have studied or have a background on car mechanics. And they can fix their own car gadgets. But if you are not as enthusiastic with your car or if your knowledge and skills are limited, ask the help of an expert. If you are a practical person, you most likely practice this with your every gadget. Extending the life of your gadgets does not make you a cheap skate. It only makes you practical. That trait is never a bad thing.
Turn it into art
I know. The thing’s obviously junk. Why can’t you be like all the other Americans and just throw it away? Well, for one, the moment you’ve seen the word art in this article, your mind is already churning with innovative and ingenious ideas for the reformed image of your car audio. An idea-given that it’s good enough-is worth good money. This section will obviously appeal to artists and art enthusiasts. If you think you can do something beautiful with rejected machines such as a defective car audio, don’t you think you have to pursue it? You will never know what you can create unless you try.
Sell it to a junk car shop
If you think you can’t extend its life or even create a new life for it, bring it to the people who have uses for it-a junk car shop. These shops specialize in whole junk cars, usually those wrecked in a car accidents. These shops either revive the cars and resell them as used cars or recycle the parts when the car is beyond repair. Such shops can definitely find a purpose for your car audio.
Of course, there are other uses for a used or defective car audio. You only have to be one of these two things: creative or resourceful. The possibilities are always endless when your goal is innovation. What we have here are just a few examples to jumpstart your brain. This does not end with car audio or other car parts. Remember that you can turn anything into something new with your vision and enthusiasm.
