“It’s at this very moment that you need a better lens for a clearer focus on your future!” – Futurist Jim Carroll

Hey there! How’s your future going? Because each and every day, you live the moments that you thought about yesterday!

Here’s what we know about tomorrow: there are those who are working hard today to best position themselves for what it might bring. And then there’s the rest of you who are still fighting the battles of today, unwilling or unable to move beyond this one awful day!

If you are in the first camp, then you are probably someone who thinks quite a bit about trends and what might come next. It’ been fascinating over the last few weeks as an increasing number of inquiries come in fro presentations related to my insight as a futurist. For well over 25 years, I’ve been guiding organizations – very successfully – into the trends of tomorrow.

And I’m still doing that – albeit, through a bit of a different lens.

Over on my Topics page, I’ve recently put up this keynote/Webinar description. Give it a read and then ask yourself if you are doing the right things to escape that long, awful eternity that is today’s moment!

Our World in 2030: The Post-Pandemic Trends That Redefine Your Future

Years from now, we will look back and realize that many industries, technologies, concepts and disruptive ideas accelerated throughout the crisis of 2020 – because they played a major role in the rebuilding of our dramatically different future. We will also know that by carefully analyzing the trends of yesterday in the context of fast moving events that we were best able to understand these new trends of tomorrow.

Futurist Jim Carroll examines your world and industry in the microscope of a new lens, providing critical insight to the trends that matter – and that redefine our future. The acceleration of trends like 3D printing and biomaterial science, robots & cobots, genetic medicine and virtualized community care, resiliency-oriented supply chains and last mile logistics technology, delivery drones and personal space heat tracking – all of which are playing a role in our eventual post-pandemic, recovery oriented world. In this new future, business models continue to evolve but at a faster pace; new revenue opportunities are emerging at hyper-speed as entirely new products are invented and new industries are born to deal with the crisis; entire industries are forever changed as the new era of “personal space” and “economic distancing” came to define all forms of human interaction going forward.

It’s in this context that the big ideas are being explored, the bold are defining their future, and the fast are aligning to acceleration. Covid-19 and the economic downturn of 2020 have redefined our future – but it’s by understanding this new future and aligning to the opportunities that it presents that breakthrough performers discover their opportunities!
