Timeless principles

To paraphrase Jeff Bezos: I can’t predict what people will want in the future, but I can predict that no one will say “I want to pay more money for things and wait longer to receive them.”One of the reasons that some companies lead trends is that they accept that they can’t predict everything, but that certain principles are timeless and predictable. 

We don’t know what will be considered commonplace in the future, in terms of education, jobs, or relationships.   But we can bet that people will still want and need to acquire skills, trade those skills for money, maintain healthy adult relationships.

Just thinking this way opens a virtual buffet of portable, valuable problem-solving skills you can acquire regardless of what new tech, tools, platforms, or trends emerge.
