Jack Uldrich’s “Friday Future 15:” August 23, 2019

Posted in Future, Future 15, Futurist, Think

Think: This Latin Phrase Will Change the Way You Manage Problems. The phrase is Solvitur ambulando and it means “it is solved by walking.”

Think Twice: Swiss Re Identifies Five Emerging Risks: Aging infrastructure, the spread of 5G technology, central bank tinkering, genetic testing, and climate change’s impact on public health will require the insurance industry to think twice.

Think Different: Meet the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs. They’re All Over 65. Ageism is real, but there is an opportunity for those who are willing to think different.

Think Again: How Ergodicity Reimagines Economics for the Benefit of All of Us. Think the field of economics offers only one way to think about business? Think again.

Think Smarter: How Smaller Cities Are Luring High-Tech Talent. Bigger isn’t always better.

Think Harder: Why Reading Books is Important for the Brain. If you want to think harder, you will want to start picking up–and reading–more books.

Think in Questions: Become a Company That Questions Everything. Give up on answers, stick with questions!

Think 10X: Google X Head on Moonshots: 10X is Easier Than 10 Percent. You can’t inch your way into the future!

Think Bigger: Does Neven’s Law Describe Quantum Computing’s Rise? Quantum computing could get bigger much faster because advances are advancing “doubly exponentially.”

Think Faster: In a Dizzying New Upgrade, CRISPR Can Now Edit Several Genes at Once. This is how the future accelerates.

Think Radically: Discovery of a Bottleneck May Have a Major Impact on Food Crops. Photosynthesis could be accelerated by as much as 10 percent which, in turn, may allow crops to grow faster.

Think Anew: Why MICRO is the New BIG in Business. What can you learn from Chinese Copycats? More than you might imagine.

Think Like a Child: What It Takes to Make Instagram Influencing a Full-Time Career. Gen Z’s and Millennials aren’t children but social media advertising is already a $1.6 billion industry. How might you leverage social media–and the skills of your younger employees–to grow your business?

Think Sustainably: How Sustainable Capitalism Can Stem the Tide of Populism.

Think the Unthinkable: The Transhumanists Who Want to Live Forever. The idea–whether you think it is wise or not–is more realistic than most people realize.

Want to think again? You can always revisit last week’s “Future 15”.

Until next week: Don’t stop thinking about the future! But also never forget “It is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than think your way into a new way of acting“!
