We live in a world where the unknowns are never-ending. Do you think that some people can predict the characteristics of the future? Yes, you don’t know the future, but you can predict it. Today, I would like to share my list of the top characteristics of the future that we see as particularly important to watch and track. They are five things as follows:
The global war for talent and genius…
Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.
The phrase tells about competition among companies to attract and retain the most remarkable employees, or every region and country try to keep their own technologies. Why did the United States become the greatest, wealthiest, most powerful country in the world? Through technologies and talents. The State has won 371 Nobel’s, mostly in the sciences.
Re-evaluate of what people value and make them happy…
Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy. There’s going to be stress in life, but it’s your choice whether you let it affect you or not.
Different generations have different needs and thoughts. There will be a re-evaluation of what makes the next generation happy. They may value simplicity over clutter and experiences over material. With me, when I return home and see my son waiting for me, I am happy.
Distributed innovation from everywhere…
Innovation is taking two things that already exist and putting them together in a new way.
Innovation has always been important to humanity. It meets distribution. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. There is no monopoly on innovation by any one company, country or region. Innovation will be from everywhere. Most innovation will come from small, emerging players. The rest of the world, large companies being the partners for innovators.
There is much more freedom…
You want to fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.
Imagine a robot capable of treating Ebola patients or cleaning up nuclear waste. Robots to replace our jobs. Human will have much more freedom to spend their time pursuing their passion. Multi-tasking, parallel working, and short-lived organizations and workgroups will be the norm.
An entirely digital world…
The 4th industrial revolution = physical + digital + biological
There is an entirely digital world in which information communication and collaboration are comprehensive and instantaneous. That’s the end of the fourth industrial revolution.
The above are some of the outlines of the future and we are sure it will be very different from today and driven by the distributed innovations from everywhere. Please share to everyone your thoughts.
