Fascinating View of The Future

(I am not sure of the source – I did not author this. However most makes sense to me as likely to happen based on trends. )

In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.

Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt.

What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 years and, most people won’t see it coming.

Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on film again?

Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore’s law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a time, before it became way superior and became mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen again with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3Dprinting, agriculture and jobs. Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Welcome to the Exponential Age .

Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.

Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world.

Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don’t own any properties.

Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world . This year, a computer beat the best Go-player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected.

In the US , young lawyers already don’t get jobs. Because of IBM’s Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans.

So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain.

Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, its 4 times more accurate than human nurses.

Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans. (NEVER!/Albert)

Autonomous cars : In 2018 the first self driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don’t want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving.

Our kids will never get a driver’s license and will never own a car.

It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking spaces into parks.

1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 60,000 miles (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to 1 accident in 6million miles (10 million km). That will save a million lives each year.

Most car companies will probably become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.

Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla.

Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.

Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.

Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020. Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity.

Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact.

Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that can’t last. Technology will take care of that strategy.

With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents). We don’t have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.

Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the “Tricorder” from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it.

It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any disease.. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medical analysis, nearly for free Goodbye, medical establishment.

3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes.

Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.

At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home.

In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-story office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that’s being produced will be 3D printed.

Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, first ask yourself: “In the future, do I think we will have that?” and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?

If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea. And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century.

Work : 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a short time. This will require a rethink on wealth distribution.

My Tribute July 4, 2016

Watch This First – Most Do Not Know

As a citizen of this country, I honor and defend what has gone before me.

It is time for us to be proud again – very proud

We have many challenges and I am not suggesting that I have all the answers I strongly feel our system is broken and I know our constitution provided a mechanism for when this happens. They somehow knew.

The Future of Health Care Is Here Now With The 4 Pillars of Vibrant Health – Alert Many Doctors and All Pharmaceutical Companies Will Disagree

Doctor of the Future

 

Health Care As Defined By Most

The Wall Street Journal recently reported on a fairly large university that self funds it’s health care program. The essence of the article is there is a growing struggle because of the rapidly escalating cost of prescription medication and medical services. The solutions being implemented include: higher co-pays, use of generic prescriptions where possible and limited prescription refills for certain drugs. For example a person may get a two week supply of a very expensive drug rather than one month to make sure they were benefiting from the medication. There is more to this process of  managing traditional health care to ensure the procedures being reimbursed are reasonable and necessary.  That is a separate topic.

The Above Partial Example Whether It Is For Self Insured Plans, Insured Care or Provided Care Is Not Health Care – It Is Sick Care.

Building Business Profits FastIn my book Building Business Profits Fast that was published in 2013 I devoted an entire chapter to what I labeled The Gold Formula tm This formula applies to any situation in life whether it be professional or personal. Here is how it applies in the health care arena:

What is the goal?

My goal is to be healthy. Do I manage my life to be healthy? Yes I do. Do most of the people I know manage their life to be healthy? No they do not.

What would I do if I were responsible for the health care of the country or a company?

I would manage health like I manage health care for myself. As above, I would first define the goal which is to be healthy. Note I am excluding those situations for now that are the few exceptions. Those include accidents and the small percentage of situations where the attention of medical professionals is clearly valuable.

Once you define the goal then it is important to be specific as to what are the strategic areas that based on the information we have today are the ones where we need a game plan? There are four and I refer to these as the four pillars of health care – health care for me,  a company and for the nation.

The Four Pillars ofHealth System For Achieving The The Goal of Being Healthy

antiaging11. Mindset – each person needs to decide what they need to have the right mindset for health. This means each person needs to understand there are resources for personal growth and development that address minimizing stress which is a leading cause of high blood pressure and heart attacks. Healthy mindset means in your heart and mind you know it is natural to be healthy and to advance in life with vibrant energy. Once you know that then you can reinforce that mindset with resources that help you navigate the stuff our ego throws at us. We define that stuff as problems and stress. There are many other areas where self- development helps a person including self-worth, confidence, expanded consciousness and more. Personal: I devote minimum 30 minutes and often more to achieving my mindset goals.

These mindset resources also reinforce the importance of:

Healthy Foods22. Healthy lifestyle as defined by what we eat and drink. People in America mostly eat industrialized processed food and contaminated water. Bad water is found everywhere including in the bottles we buy. Why in the world we accept GMO fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy and fish is beyond my comprehension. Healthy lifestyle also includes:

13. Exercise and the main point is we strengthen our immune system when we regularly exercise. Regularly means at least 30 minutes 4 times a week. For anyone to do that the exercise program of choice like the food and drink we choose to make part of our life must be sustainable. If you love going to the gym that is the right program for you. If you love yoga, dancing, walking, running, biking, skating …whatever it is, that is the right program for you. If you think you are going to love your top pics everyday let me be clear you are not. What you have to love is the picture and feeling of being healthy. That picture and feeling will be your why. In America we generally have given the responsibility to our doctors and pharmacists. That does not work. These three pillars are incomplete now that we know about:
4. Increase the circulation in our capillary system that naturally slows down as we age, experience stress, experience physical or emotional trauma and from environmental influences including less than optimal food and drink, pollution, electromagnetic impulses from cell phones, WiFi, radio, TV and more. When this circulation system slows down,cell cannot get the blood needed for nutrition, oxygen and waste removal. When the cells begin to not function properly, health problems begin. The common treatment is prescription medication which can further slow the circulation. Our capillary circulatory system is minute, extensive and has not nerve receptors. When diabetics begin to lose circulation in their limbs and most notably in their legs they can run the risk of amputation. This is because medication, massage and other therapies do not increase that circulation. People with the healthiest lifestyles including those in MLM that market high quality supplements still have the problem with this circulatory system slow down because of the factors mentioned above. Note I am an advocate of the MLM industry. I have found that I provide more value by focusing on this 4 Pillar System.  The Fourth Pillar is the medical device I represent  This  technology that is nearly two decades old proven to increase the circulation in our capillary network. When combined with the first three pillars, we now have the foundation for a very rewarding health care system.

How This All Relates To The Gold Formula tm

Gold Formula tmThe Gold Formula tm is simply tracking the variance from plan. I discovered the Gold is in the variance and for anyone to have a variance they have to have plan and measure actual results against the plan.

This 4 Pillar Plan Will Work For More Than 90% of The Population.

I have just begun to get this message out. Please adopt and share if it makes sense to you.

For your health and vitality

PS The 4 Pillar System is a comprehensive approach to improving the quality of life. I look forward to talking with you about implementing this program.

 

Two States Illinois and Oklahoma – WOW What A Difference

TWO STATES IN THE MIDDLE OF AMERICA!

Illinois and Oklahoma:

Interesting Contrast. (Note – this was found in the public domain on line. I have not verified the statistics. If you find something that is incorrect, comment and I will fix it.)

PART 1 – Illinois

“A State with No Republicans Leading Government”!

Some interesting data on the ‘state’ of, the State of Illinois… There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. Their average pay is $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?

Body count:
In the last six months, 292 killed ( Murdered ) in Chicago .
221 killed in Iraq ; AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

Here’s the Chicago chain of command :

President: Barack Hussein Obama
Senator: Dick Durbin
House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
Governor: Pat Quinn
House leader: Mike Madigan
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
Mayor: Rahm Emanuel
The leadership in Illinois – all Democrats.

Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago . .
Of course, they’re all blaming each other. .
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any! .

Let us get ALL the facts out while we are at it:

Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to ‘fix’ Washington politics for us?

George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.

He was replaced by Rob Blagojevich who is, by the way, also in prison.

And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned and, that’s right, he and his wife are both in prison.

The Land of Lincoln , where our Governors and Representatives make our license plates. What?

As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go bankrupt before the country does.

With all the bad news, there is hope, so let’s go to:

PART 2- Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA- may soon have plenty of new residents!

THIS IS REALLY INTERESTING,

Oklahoma is the only state that Obama did not win even one county in the last election… look what Oklahoma has been doing!!!

An update from Oklahoma:
Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values… HB 1330

Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.

Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Recently Oklahoma passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegal’s to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB1102.

Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Several weeks ago, Oklahoma passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining, Texas , Montana and Utah as the only states to do so. More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once
again. HJR 1003

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I’m sure that was a setback for the criminals The Liberals didn’t like it- –

But…

Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers’ license exams will be printed in English and only English and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma , you must read and write English. Really simple.

By the way, the Liberals don’t like any of this either.

Guess what… who cares… Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

Success Mastery: Excellent Customer Service Will Win Every Time If The Price Is Right

ExcellenceWhen you look at the data and the results it is easy to understand why a business is successful and another one fails. Amazon continues to expand what it offer and levels of service. They are obsessed with getting it right and your satisfaction. I am a Prime member and I think it costs about $79.00 a year. What that gets me is free shipping and fast delivery. I recently ordered several items that I use regularly the prices were better than Sams Club and delivered right to my door in 2 days. It is amazing service and that is the key to success in business.

Have you been to a Radio Shack lately? See the point? Relentless attention to delivering what the customer wants is key. For the record I am not knocking the helpful attitude of people who work at Radio Shack. In fact their willingness to help is generally far greater than what you will find at most retail stores. However, look at the rest of the picture of customer service. I have never received one email from Radio Shack and I am a customer. I receive emails from Amazon everyday. Because Radio Shack does not communicate with me I have no idea of what they are recommending or promoting and they have no idea of what I think of their service. On the other hand Amazon asks me to rate every transaction.

I am not an insider to Amazon and do no work for them. I would make a strong bet they have statistics on all areas of performance and are consistently looking for ways to improve. In reading articles about and interviews with Jeff Bezos, my impression is he operates at the level of founder as well as anyone in the world. He focuses on what will Amazon look like three to five years from now and even beyond. Most executives have no idea as to the precise roles of a founder, CEO and CFO. Most companies follow traditional organization structure and classical organization behavior still taught in most business schools. If those principles worked, companies like Radio Shack and others would be thriving.

Is there an absolute fool proof roadmap. My answer is yes with one qualification: people must use and implement it. Want to know more? Call Me.

Solutions

Strongbrook for positive residual cash flow What Do You Want?

When asked , most people’s answers include some variation of the following:

1. Good health
2. Financial freedom
3. Meaningful relationships

The definition of each of these is personal.  However, in order to achieve your definition of each and all of this top three list the intended outcome or goal needs to be clear. This article is mostly focused on the second item in the list – Achieving  Financial Freedom – This is A Solution

Most people know that residual income means money that comes to you on a recurring basis without you having to repeat an action.  For example, if you have money invested in a fund the yields a 4% return, the return is residual.  People who produce  songs, movies, books receive royalties which is residual. Those who build a successful team in a network marketing business earn a residual income.  If you own a business that has employees and is profitable, the earnings can be considered residual.

Residual income equals financial freedom  when the income exceeds the expenses of the lifestyle you desire.  For most people this can never be a reality because there has not been a practical, predictable way to achieve this – until now.

In the last month I learned of a company whose business model is totally focused on providing everyone regardless of how much or little money they have with the product and support for not only achieving financial freedom but also offering the resources for achieving improved health, fitness and relationships.  More on the health and relationship solutions in another article 

The Foundation of Financial Freedom

The Strongbrook Group.  has three pillars to their business model which are:

1.  Real Estate:  helping people develop their own single family home portfolio that are rented and produce positive monthly cash flow – residual income that achieves the individual’s financial freedom definition.  This is a 100% do it for you model with your involvement being making the decisions. This model in the real estate industry is called labeled Turnkey .  Take a close look at how this can help you achieve your financial freedom goal.  Click Here

Gift For You: FREE Book   strait-path-book

2. Entrepreneurship: in this pillar Strongbrook has developed a system for helping people currently not in a position to make a down payment on a turnkey residential property.  The name of this division is Strongbrook Direct  My view is that this is brilliant because there is now a way for anyone to create an income stream that is the foundation for buying your own properties.  Click Here to learn more about Strongbrook Direct.

3. Personal Development: the newest division of Strongbrook is Conscious Creator Mentoring Network.  All of us can benefit from mentors and we advance the fastest when specialists help us.  There is an exciting  business opportunity and a pay it forward model that are part of this exciting new division.  I will share more about this very soon.  For now, anyone who has achieved a measure of success has mentors and devotes meaningful time to personal development. All of us need to have and use a personal development program. Strongbrook is bringing together some of the best resources and mentors for us.

“I Am Responsible”

It should be clear that depending on the government,  a company, and in many cases the community for your health and well being  is at best a very risky strategy.  Independently secure in the areas of health, prosperity and relationships is a practical and achievable goal. Strongbrook is a very sound well established company and there is an extended team to help you as well.  

This is a brief introduction. I have included some links to help you learn more and I am available to answer your questions.  The next move is up to you.

Thomas Jefferson – This Is Leadership Making a Huge Positive Difference

thomas jefferson1The following was sent to me in an email. I don’t know the author. It is outstanding.  I hope you appreciate this as much as I do. 

Steve Pohlit

I Support The Convention of States 


THOMAS JEFFERSON

There are two parts. Be sure to read the 2nd part (in  RED ).

  Thomas Jefferson was a very remarkable man who started learning very early in life and never stopped.

  At 5, began studying under his cousin’s tutor.

  At 9, studied Latin, Greek and French.

  At 14, studied classical literature and additional languages.

  At 16, entered the College of William and Mary. Also could write in Greek with one hand while writing the same in Latin with the other.

At 19, studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe. 

At 23, started his own law practice. 

At 25, was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses. 

At 31, wrote the widely circulated “Summary View of the Rights of British America”; and retired from his law practice. 

At 32, was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress. 

At 33, wrote the Declaration of Independence. 

At 33, took three years to revise Virginia’s legal code, wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom. 

At 36, was elected the second Governor of Virginia, succeeding Patrick Henry. 

At 40, served in Congress for two years. 

At 41, was the American minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations, along with Ben Franklin and John Adams. 

At 46, served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington. 

At 53, served as Vice President and was elected president of the American Philosophical Society. 

At 55, drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became the active head of Republican Party. 

At 57, was elected the third president of the United States . 

At 60, obtained the Louisiana Purchase, doubling the nation’s size. 

At 61, was elected to a second term as President. 

 

At 65, retired to Monticello. 

At 80, helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine. 

At 81, almost single-handedly created the University of Virginia and served as its first
president.
 

At 83, died on the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence along with John Adams. 

Thomas Jefferson knew human nature and government because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, His laws and the nature of man. That happens to be much more than what most of us understand today. Jefferson is a voice from the past to lead us in the future. 

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House, with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

Read the following wisdom:

“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
— Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:   “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.   If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

I wish we could get this out to every American!  I’m doing my part. So please do yours.
