“Welcome to tomorrow, a land of infinite opportunities!” – #Futurist Jim Carroll
My job? I’m really just a tour guide – one that involves time travel! Not always looking back to yesterday, but more often, to what might be tomorrow!
When I’m up on stage in front of an audience, one of my favourite go-to phrases is this one: “Some people see the future and see a threat. Innovators see the same future and see an opportunity!”
Which person are you?
Do you fear the future with trepidation and worry, concern over the fact that things might change, and that you might have a difficult time in dealing with it?
Or do you start each and every day with a mindset that there are unlimited opportunities out there that you might go and seize?
Mindset matters! That’s because we know one thing – tomorrow is going to happen, tomorrow, whether you like it or not – and there will probably be something different to deal with. It all comes down to how you approach that fact.
I walk my audiences through the trends that provide a world of unparalleled opportunity. I don’t think we’ve ever lived in a period of time that has involved so many trends coming together all at once : genomics, 3d printing, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, autonomous technology, cobots, advanced new materials, mass customization…..
Give me an industry and I’ll give you a grab bag of trends that are simply full of endless opportunity – and a roadmap through the tunnel that is time travel.
