I hate cables. I have a lot of cables; Wacom, Lightning, speakers, headphones, MagSafe etc. The person who can solve the world’s cable problem will definitely add a lot of value to our everyday lives. That’s why I dislike education. Schools sometimes want to teach you to be creative, which in essence results in quite the opposite. They might come up with an exercise where you have to think of all sorts of solutions to solve the cable problem. But if you just let people do what they want, they will automatically think of many solutions for problems that bug them out. Their solutions might not have anything to do with the cable problem, but it could still be significant in another field.
