We live in very interesting times when it comes to opportunities in life. Especially in this digital age. Where computers are becoming more what people use to generate value. It can be in form of video/text/music/digital art but many new creators can now find an audience that would have a hard time in the past to reach out to people.
With the open internet you now have access to 7 billion other humans. Just imagine the potential in that. A website is a form of mini empire where you can create whatever you are interested in and can find an audience that are interesting in the same kind of topics. This bitcoin thing I have found to be highly interesting to follow. It’s a digital currency that has gained a lot in value since 2010.
I first noticed it in 2011 but didn’t have the humility to actually invest in it back then. Then 2013 it did rise up to 10 dollars per coin. Me and my friend was talking about investing in bitcoin back then but we didn’t.
If we would have invested 1000 dollars in Bitcoin early 2013 then it would have been worth 460,000 dollars by now! Wow that is crazy! This is the wild times that we live in. Which of course is highly exciting for the youths.
There are so many opportunities out there these days with the internet that if you pay attention then you can jump in and take advantage. Read and educate yourself because it’s so cheap and easy to get access to quality information these days.
Via Amazon Kindle app on Android or iOS you have access to thousands of high quality books. With a ton of value. I have bought over 200 books since 2014. It’s my main way of reading books these days.
A good advice is don’t follow sheep mentality but try to think for yourself. The thing now with Bitcoin is when everyone invests in something then it’s usually a bad idea to do it. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
And most importantly invest for the long term. Life is a marathon not a sprint. This is not just in the money area but all area’s of your life where you invest time and energy into.
Something that comes fast usually also leaves you fast. Progress in nature usually happens slow. Because it’s like you are a tree. To grow tall and big you need to grow deep roots. And that takes slow time. This doesn’t mean the journey will be boring. You just gotta learn to truly love the process.
Bitcoin is just one part of this new digital world. The world of programming I also find highly interesting. Because not many people know it so well. So there is great value to gain there if you are willing to learn complex things.
Remember in life that you get paid in proportion to the problem that you solve. So if you solve an easy problem then you probably won’t be paid much. But if you solve a problem that requires more deep thinking then you will be rewarded higher.
The whole world of programming is so cool because you can create anything you want. There are truly no limits there. At least not as far as we know. There are always new problems to be solved. If you want to create your own game for Android or iOS then you have Unity you can work in. That will do most of the behind the scenes work to make your games work on any platform you want.
I am also super curious to see where Virtual Reality will go in the future. One problem with it now is it feels clumsy to use. The HTC Vive headset feels too heavy and it has a large cable behind your back when you are playing. In the future of course it will be more slimmer but it’s going to be interesting to see if humans will turn into robots. Today I saw a man out on street with a robot leg. That was strange. We are truly turning into digital machines!
We are becoming more humans on planet earth than ever before and robotics are taking over. The question is what will humans do as in work? Because if robots takes over most of jobs that today’s are simple what will humans do? Especially when singularity is getting closer. When computers will be able to improve themselves without our help! Now that is scary and exciting at the same time. How will the future world look like. That’s the question.
