What Does the Future Hold?
DISHWASHERS save time in the kitchen. Washing machines do likewise in the laundry. Millions of people do not even have to leave home to do their shopping and banking anymore—they simply turn on their computer and use the Internet.
Yes, the world, at least in part, is bursting with all kinds of time- and labor-saving devices. Hence, you would think that people would have an abundance of time to spend with their families, and for relaxation. Yet, all too often, many say that they are more tired and stressed than ever before. You go on vacation and when you get back home, you are still exhausted and need another vacation. The causes are many, and complex.
Often we find ourselves drifting off into yesterday, or thinking all-too-soon about tomorrow. Our future, an elusive state of mind, is so unique and misunderstood that even as your eyes consumed the previous lines on this page, your future has eclipsed both time and space to become your past.
To think about:
In today’s fast-moving technological society, the elderly are often victims as well. The speed of change and the constant flood of new gadgets onto the market make many feel confused, insecure, afraid, or even obsolete. So what does the future hold?
Today there is software that converts the spoken word automatically into text. You talk, your computer types up to 100 words a minute. IBM figures the more sophisticated technology becomes, the less you should be aware of it.
The pervasiveness of technology is perhaps most apparent in the proliferation of cell phones, many of which are no longer just phones. Advanced models enable users to access the Internet, send and receive e-mail and text messages, watch TV, listen to music, take photos, navigate by the Global Positioning System (GPS), and—oh, yes—and phone someone! Also, software required for processing material for publication into multi languages has been developed.
If the future is about anything, it is about you, YOUR BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY and your ability to see life better than it was in the past, and then to share that progressive vision with those around you.
