The Future is Faster than you Think

By Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler

Peter and Steven perfectly explain how technology is already having a huge impact on our work — and private lives. Often times we talk about “the future” when we refer to Artificial Intelligence, forms of automation, and numerous other technological innovations. The fact, however, is that technology has already made its way into our jobs, homes, education, and private life.

Key Takeaways

🤖 The future we refer to is often actually the present. In many cases, what we deem something we won’t see for years to come, is something organizations and innovators al already working on. The fact that we can’t see certain innovations — that might sound out of our reach — might well be something that’s being tested behind closed doors.

🚀 Technology is exponential so it grows fast. One innovation can open up a whole set of other innovations. Especially in this time and age, it can feel like you’ve only heard about something, just to find out it’s already old news. It’s important to keep op with the basics, to not fall behind too much. (personal word of advice: read into Blockchain, NFT’s, and Web3.0. It’s a lot of hype now, but it will settle and some parts will become the norm).

👶 Make sure kids grow up with a decent amount of technology, allowing them to test the waters. Personally, I often hear “kids should play outside, not indoors all day”, but it’s ultimately the same result. Kids connect with other kids through platforms as we used to outdoors or at parks etc. Not saying “keep them indoors all day”, but let kids grow up with what’s current. It’ll help them grow into it to their advantage later on.
