Have you been giving any thought lately to the world we’re leaving our children, and our grandchildren,
The world they will be inheriting from us? Our legacy. Imagine what life will be like, speeded up well beyond anything we can keep up with even today. Imagine how fast everything will be changing, in just a few years.
Think about the kind of obstacles our kids will face in just making a living. Robotics alone will have eliminated half of all the jobs we depend on today. The new jobs will demand a level of competence we have never known, and that level will keep rising. Adjusting to continuous change will be the norm.
Are we doing enough today, right now, to prepare our children, and our grandchildren, for life in the near future? The 2020s and 2030s? The 2050s?
Are we doing anything?
One of the virtues of sculpting is that you can be thinking of something else while your hands are busy creating something that will be cherished for a lifetime. My something else is usually someone else’s problem.
