1 Good reason to believe in the future


They say we live in an uncertain world. In some ways that’s true but the future is a lot more predictable than you might think.

I’m often asked what I think the next 10 years will be like. The answer is simple. The next 10 year will be pretty much like the last 10 years and the years before that.

The next 10 years will be a constant stream of challenges, with lots of problems to be solved. And that is actually good news for us all. Why?

It’s good news for us all because it will ensure that there is a constant stream of opportunities for enterprising people to exploit. So we can all make a good living and all we have to do is focus on those problems we can solve for other people.

Yes, jobs may be in short supply but there will always be plenty of customers with problems to be solved. Customers for goods and services not yet invented.

If we can all learn to look for customers, rather than jobs, and make sure we have the skills and knowhow to solve problems for those customers, we’ll always have work and over time from that we can build wealth.

Work is just doing stuff for other people in return for money.

Opportunities will always be there and we can choose to take them or not. For the fleet of foot there will always be opportunities to make money, regardless of politics and political personalities.

Find customers you can serve, serve them well and you’ll always do well.

And it doesn’t matter whether you were successful or otherwise at school. That’s irrelevant. There are plenty of successful and wealthy people who failed to shine at school.

Skills can be learned at any time in your life. So look around for people you can help, improve your knowledge and skills as you go along and gradually enhance your earning ability. It can be done; people do and you can too.

Let me finish with an assignment for you. Look around for a problem to be solved. Who is the potential customer and what skills will you need if you are to solve that problem for the customer? And once you’ve identified those skills, how will you get them and by when? Start right now.
