Sometimes we don’t want to see the future. We have all the signals in front of us, explicit. It would take such a little effort to relate trends and behaviors that we could anticipate what would happen soon. It’s a good investment to monitor the key tendencies and movements in our society. Especially about our fields of interest. If we feel like a trend is becoming more and more solid and we receive signals from multiple and diverse sources it could be worthy to invest some time in investigating its nature. That’s one of the possible ways we can act to be more prepared for the future or to become part of those forces shaping it.
