WHAT KEEPS YOU UP AT NIGHT?

Perhaps you wonder what your work life will be like in 10 years, or 20 years.
Perhaps you wonder what kind of business someone will invent that will change everything.
Well, there’s probably a group of well-funded thinkers that are wondering the same thing.
Elizabeth Preston, a correspondent for The Boston Globe, tackled this topic in an article published July 30, 2015.
Elon Musk, founder of Tesla, which makes electric cars, is among those funding studies that will help us prepare for the technology crises of the future.
Technology has changed many workplaces, and will continue to do so.
Uber has changed the way many people get around.
So what will be next?
“Real world scientists are thinking apocalyptically. Many believe that humans – sometime between inventing agriculture and reshaping the global climate –have created a new, global epoch,” Preston writes.
This age, informally called anthroposcene, will be the subject of a new section of the National Museum in Washington, D.C., Preston says.
We’ve already seen the world go from dinosaurs to robots, double-wings to drones. But what’s next?
You may be hearing things from investors that say they know what the next big thing is going to be, but they are only telling a few of their closest friends. To become such a friend, you have to pay money.
So what is it worth to you to have insight into a serious game-changer before everyone else does? As we all have seen, things we thought would be game-changers didn’t turn out as hyped. Some of the things have even become a pain to live with. For example, do you have a love-hate relationship with your smart phone, or computer? These devices have helped people do more things more quickly, but they also can, and have, complicated many lives.
The next big technology breakthrough may save lives, but may cost jobs.
The next big breakthrough could help us alter nature, but should we fool with nature like that? It may help us better prepare for bad weather, but bad weather is an everyday occurrence somewhere. Can we stop ALL such destruction?
So, are you, like these Musk-funded think tanks, obsessed with what technology will do in the future? Perhaps so, perhaps not.
If you want a simpler life, yet want to make more money than you are making now, without affecting what you are currently doing, visit www.bign.com/pbilodeau. You see a way to put money in your pocket without having to invest in the next big thing.
Though we may reminisce about simpler times, few of us would care to go back there. In fact, it’s virtually impossible to go back there.
We merely take what is, adjust our lives accordingly and aim for something better. It’s certainly OK to dream, or think about, what can be. But it’s much safer to keep our thoughts in line with what we want for ourselves, and what we want for others. Finding ways to help others is perhaps the most virtuous of thoughts. Make that your next big thing.
Peter
