So, what's the world will look like in 10 years? Here are my prediction and there is a damm high probability it's going to happen.
Transportation didn't evolve for the past 100 years, but imagine this future: Singapore to New York in half hour. Boeing and Airbus shares will plummet. People will be launch into Orbit. Transiting far distances will be super fast. Tickets will be the same price as current economy flight tickets. I'm not making this up, it's viable with current calculations. While an airplane will take 20 hours, Spacex could have done 20 flights. Short haul flights will be done by electric planes.
Car accidents will dramatically drop. Self driving / AI will be at the wheel. No more traffic jams as cars can be shared. Taxi drivers will lose their jobs. The use of ICE ( Internal Combustion Engine ) cars, will be like using a Nokia.
Battery technology will improve year after year. This will be the key to zero emissions. And it's already showing as some islands are already powered only by solar / battery combination.
Do you know? It only takes a 100 square miles of solar panels to power the entire United States? Though it sounds big, think about the % amount of land that is. It's just a mere dot. Why is it not done? Well, there are jobs / politics at play here. I won't go deep here. China is 10 years ahead of the world, look that what they are doing. Massive massive change, the cities are no more as polluted like before.
Less demand for materials
In the new world, people are buying less, more informed on the products they buy. People prefer to spend their money on experiences. Old industries will fall, new industries keeping themselves relevant will strive. The only way for old industries to survive, is the constant disruption of oneself. This was very made even clearer to me by my amazing business partner.
Keeping yourself relevance will be more prevalent than ever, In the new Information Age, we can just search anything. Information is not the limiting factor. It's being resourceful and being relevant which will make the difference between in society. Education is not everything because information is freely available.
Above are my prediction and probably some has already taken shape. 2019 is coming and let's push on. Keep pushing on... to the life you want to lead. The purpose of life is to fking enjoy your life, to love and give. I'm always happy to give advise, just drop me a PM. I'm just a PM away.
