Predict The Future And Get Ahead Of The Game

I spend a lot of time thinking about the future:

  • What industries will be in heavy demand?
  • What industries will become obsolete?
  • What will bodybuilding training look like in 20 years?
  • What will cardio workouts look like in 20 years?
  • What will the typical family life look like in 20 years?

It is definitely an interesting time to be alive.  The life that I am experiencing today is completely different from the world that my parents and grandparents experienced.

What are some of the major changes?

  • Technology.  Night and day from what my parents and grandparent’s experienced.  I didn’t even have a cell-phone until my junior year of College.
  • Workplace:  Many, many, jobs are becoming location independent.  Unless you need access to raw materials or face-time with clients, many jobs are going to be available wherever there is internet access

Traditionally, when you started a family you would buy a house and that would be the neighborhood that you would raise your family in.  My parents are in the same house since 1979 and so are most of my friend’s parents.

I think that is going to change.

Real estate does have the benefit of a growing population.  There will always be more people in this country (outside of another major war) and there isn’t enough space to fill for everyone.  They don’t have a lot of extra space in cities like New York or San Francisco.

But people are also becoming more mobile.

Could I live in Europe for 6 months, 3 months in my hometown of NYC and 3 months in Florida?

It wouldn’t be very easy, but I could.

I don’t need to be stuck in the same place for 40 consecutive years.

What about training?

I like it when I cook all of my food for the week at the same time.

I am also a big fan of intermittent fasting and have been very successful using it that last several years.

Nobody can completely predict the future, but with just a little big of foresight, you can at least set yourself up in a good situation.

Which careers are going to be “hot”? At least in my opinion:

  • Anything health care related.  Many, many, senior citizens.
  • Natural and organic food.
  • Estate planning.  Many, many, senior citizens.

 

And for training/bodybuilding:

 

  • Less long distance-running.  I have stated many times that I do not think long-distance running is healthy.
  • Less sets.  I like to hit it and quit it.  Heavy weights, less bullsh%t sets.
  • Short, fast, cardio.  More sprinting for people ages 40+
  • Pre-planned meals.  More preparation in advance for the general population.

 

So what do you think the future will be like?
