Don’t try to solve tomorrow’s problems with today’s resources.
Concerned about how I was possibly going to care for my aging mother, I argued with fate, “I don’t have the time and money to do this.”
“Do you want your mother to be cared for?” came to my mind.
“Of course I do.”
“Then love her. You’ll have what you need. Your picture of the future is incomplete.” was the answer.
It was. And all worked out so differently than I imagined.
In his book Abundance: The Future is Better than You Think, Peter Diamandis reminded me that in macroeconomics the principle is the same. We can give in to doom and gloom, or, we can factor in the benefit that tomorrow’s exponentially improved information and technologies will bring.
