I’m sure you would agree that living with the changes of the 21st Century is challenging and exciting all at the same time. Im not sure that, thats possible but some days it feels like it!
I received this promotion video from Creative cloud earlier in the week. (The first 20 minutes is interesting) It really confirmed what I wrote about last week and have been thinking about for some time. These guys carried out research that told them that there have been more changes on the planet in the past five years than there has been in the past 50 .
It mentions how technology and the people who are skilling themselves to use technology are not only influencing but are apart of the strategy for the direction on how business is being done on the planet now.
The promo, I think, is addressing some of our thoughts about the changes of the 21st Century. It also includes comments that I resinate with, for example change comes from experimenting. Unfortunatley experimenting is not how we are taught in school how to learn. Experimenting, in our work hard for a living world, takes courage and trust. Just in my humble opinion! AND…. in my humble opinion…. experimentation is the way to learn. (That link is a video I shot awhile ago about change and experimenting)
Changes of the 21st Century
It is predicted that by 2015, 15 billion devices will be connected to the internet, When this prediction was made, 2011, the population was only 7 billion. Does that mean that for every man women and child on the planet will have two devices… Incredible changes hey! (this info came from)
In 2004 the BBC says that we spent 1 hour everyday connecting to people over the internet. If you want to read more. Now we apparently spend a staggering three hours and 45 minutes a day , socially, not work time, talking via landlines and mobile phones, texting and e-mailing. This is not work related time!
Most of us are on Facebook, 68 per cent of Facebook users, use it everyday, and 86 per cent use it every week.
The internet was used for browsing in the 90s, and searching in the 2000s, to a tool for “discovering content and discovering things through the lens of your friends”.
Facebook accounted for 43 per cent of news sharing and 80 million people played Zynga’s Farmville game because it revolved around people and interaction. ( These pieces come from)
That last sentence is fascinating to me, because, as much as we all know what each of us are doing through sharing photos, videos, tweets, comments through various media options. More and more people are hungry for community, for real life conversation, for real people contact, for fun, for laughter. The family and our real friend communities are becoming more and more important to us who spend time running businesses of all types, working in jobs of all types.
Love to hear your comments on how you live in the 21st Century and how you gain a balance between taking on the changes, enjoying your time to yourself, enjoying your time with family and special people you love. What do you do to stay healthy and eat what your body needs rather than what is at hand to eat.
What do you do and how do you do it?
Last week I wrote a piece on Taking time to think, this is what I like to do to assist my amazing lifestyle! I work from home now, like many of us, we can work from anywhere with these technological changes. Of course there are many challenges that come from the working from anywhere lifestyle. Might go into that another time, maybe while I’m in Bali next week lazing by the pool!!!!!
Have a great day!
Come and enjoy the changes of the 21st century!
