Jack Uldrich’s “Friday Future 15:” December 13, 2019

Posted in Future, Future 15, Futurist, Think

Think: Want to know the best way to think better? Think about your thinking! Think about it: How Metacognition–Thinking About Your Thinking–Can Help Your Life.

Think Twice: Yesterday, I delivered a keynote to the Associated General Contractors of Minnesota in celebration of their 100th Anniversary. I said the next one hundred years will be very different because of a variety of trends, including robotics: How Robots Are Changing the Construction Industry.

Think Historically: A quick look back at 100 of the most influential tech devices of the past decade (iPhone, Alexa, Tesla, the Kindle, etc.) can help us think deeper about the decade ahead: 100 Gadgets That Defined This Decade.

Think Different: Your next appointment with the doctor could be very different–it could be with artificial intelligence.

Think Bigger: Two companies thinking bigger about AI as it relates to health care are Amazon and Apple. In 2030, they could be your doctors!

Think Smarter:  If you are involved in transportation or urban planning, it is time to think smarter about micromobility. This report from McKinsey can help. 

Think Harder: Everyone will soon need to begin thinking much harder about plastic. Specifically, how we dispose of plastic. Here’s why:China Will No Longer Handle It.

Think Like a Child: If you want to think like a child, it would help if you could raise your curiosity quotient.

Think in Questions: Here’s a good question: What trends will shape customer experience in the years ahead? This article provides some helpful insights.

Think 10X: Electric commercial aircraft are still a novelty but this trend could grow 10X–keep an eye on it! World’s First Fully Electric Aircraft Takes Flight in Canada.

Think Cheaper: Battery prices are about to drop 50 percent in price. As they do, a lot of things will change. The time to think about these changes is now.

Think Radically:  One construction company is thinking radically about the future: ICON Has 3D Printed an Entire Village of Houses in Mexico.

Think Anew: Bankers beware. China is thinking anew about the future of money and cash: China May Be About to Launch Its First Digital Currency in Two Cities.

Think Sustainably: Rivers could generate the equivalent of a thousand nuclear power plants. More impressively, no dams would be required.

Think the Unthinkable: This article explains why dangling a space elevator off the moon isn’t as unthinkable as you may think.

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“!
