Why: It's Important.

If you've ever wondered why companies and governments don't do things in a way that seems to make sense it's probably because they base their way of doing things on outmoded, cumbersome systems.

We're now eleven years into the 21st century and in the midst of what is undoubtedly one one the greatest changes in recorded history. With the advent of the Internet in 1989 the information age began. 

Whole new ways of doing things, faster, more efficiently and leading to huge sociological changes. The technology that allows instant communication with almost anyone, almost anywhere in the world was science fiction in the 1960's as the last of the baby boomers were born.

I don't need to elaborate further on the advances and advantages of being i/t literate. But as I stated in Economic Vision it can be a toy or a tool. At a recent seminar the smart phone was described as being a billion times more powerful than that of mainframes thirty five years ago. The analogy was the expanded only fifteen years from now when computing power a billion times more powerful than the smart phone will be contained in a drop of blood.

The significance of this is that 'old' systems cannot hope to compete with this sort of growth in capability.

In this age the 'job' as we know it will disappear. As society evolves as a result of this shift we can either embrace the trends and enjoy a quality of both life and lifestyle or be left wondering what it really is all about.

Change is the only constant in life, indeed in the universe. Therefore we need to 'get good' at adapting to and embracing change, without losing the values that allowed us to have relative peace and prosperity for the last almost seventy years.

Overcoming the need to exist in financial servitude creates as freedom to explore or individual potential and from that have a positive influence on family, community, country and eventually the whole world.

The mission of Economic Vision is to assist and encourage the pursuit of both personal excellence and compassionate outreach.
