What will my life be like in 20 years? I’m laughing at the topic of this week’s #letsblogoff because I’ve been reading all kinds of “surviving 50” and “hiring aging workers” reporter queries. I assume they’re all in their thirties or early forties at most so they’re hearing horror stories about the big 5-0. (Which I will turn in about two months yippee!)
But aging aside, I will put on my “Madame Bon” turban, gaze into my PR crystal ball and give you my prediction:
We’re in a digital transformation that, just like the industrial revolution, will slow down soon. Although I think most technology will be virtual I don’t know if we’ll have THAT much more communications capability.
Physically we’ll be in much better health and I believe we will have averted the obesity crisis thanks to my sister’s work at Yale’s Rudd Center.
Stem cell therapy will give us all much better joint health so you’ll see many more 70-year old runners and yoga enthusiasts. (I plan to be one of them.)
Spiritually I think we’ll all be working in much more collective, collaborative ways…all supported by technology.
As for me I hope to be here in 20 years but frankly I’m surprised I made it this far so hitting 70 seems like a lot to ask. If I have “graduated” to heaven by then, I promise to haunt @dogwalkblog‘s editor and scare the pants off him when he’s shaving in the morning.
