Our Modern Planet. A big statement right?! However, it’s undeniable that times are changing. Very rapidly.
When it comes to talking about the planet Earth – we’re talking about every single person that lives on it. All 7 billion of us. How we are evolving as a human race.
I found this Huffington Post article really interesting: Something Extraordinary Is Happening In The World, And Most People Haven’t Noticed.
To summarise, the author Gustavo Tanaka, a Brazilian author and entrepreneur lists 8 ways he feels the world is changing. How he has freed himself “from standard-procedure society” and what that could mean for the rest of us.
What really peaked my interest was the references Gustavo makes to small businesses and entrepreneurship. A route I’ve chosen to follow myself and also a passion of mine as I thrive on helping small businesses succeed.
The article is also clever in the way that it reminds us how astronomically powerful the internet is. And how we as a society are still getting to grips with the magnitude of this power.
An undeniable power. With a mind blowing amount of information at our fingertips – the world has become a lot more accessible – smaller… Do you still need convincing how important a good website is for your business??! 😉
With the advent of the Internet, the small are no longer speechless. There is a voice. The anonymous become acknowledged. The world comes together
Here’s the list. Some real strong statements for us to mull over…
- No one can stand the employment model any longer
- The entrepreneurship model is also changing
- The rise of collaboration
- We are finally figuring out what the internet is
- The fall of exaggerated consumerism
- Healthy and organic eating
- The awakening of spirituality
- Un-schooling trends
What a list, hunh?! Check out the full article here and please do post a comment as I would love to hear your thoughts. Our Modern Planet.
