No matter if you are an entrepreneur, developer, scientist, or an engineer, you always want to know what will happen in the next 5 to 10 years. Are there self-driving cars to be realized? VR classroom or even flying cars. What is going to happen soon and what thing is going to deprecate? People always have a very mysterious thought about the future. If you are comparing the technologies between today and 10 years back, you may realize most of the products invented today are what we always complaining in the past, the more complaints we have the more it soon to happen if the problem is realistic.
In 10 years back, we want an iPhone but it’s so expensive. People are not able to afford that phone at that time and some of them complain about the price is too expensive even though the product is very good. So, here’s what Android comes out! When looking forward to the future, nothing can’t leave without supply and demands.
In the world today, everyone wants to become a successful entrepreneur. The mission of the entrepreneur is to look at what others complain about and provide a solution to it. It can be a product like machinery, software or any technology product OR it can provide services to solve their problems, that’s what job creation. So, here’s a few ways I use to predict the future.
- See what others complain every day, the more they complain the more it will realize in the future.
- Ask young people what they think the future will be like in the next 5 to 10 years.
- Learn from history, looking at the old history and how’s the trend going to.
- Qualitative and quantitative forecasting
