Technology is already so ingrained in our daily lives that the majority of Americans would not be able to function without it, however it's still hard to keep up with all of these new developments and trends as technology is something that is constantly shifting and changing. There is no need to follow the crowd or feel left behind this book will guide you to making smart choices be they in your career, business or daily life that will turn you into the trendsetter and put you ahead of the curve. If you have a futuristic mindset and are ready to put that into action this is likely going to be a good read for you.
One thing that constantly comes up in the book is to not be afraid of technology. It’s great to begin a career that is techology based, but it can be just as beneficial to adapt to the changes. One example Pugliano uses taking spreadsheets and imputing data to see trends that can increase business. It may not be something one has ever done, but the tools are there, and more than likely available for free on the internet.
This idea of thinking outside the box and coming up with the next great idea is a theme dicussed in detail by Pugliano. He talks in great detail on how the ability to be creative (along with self promotion) will help the reader to flourish in the robot-driven society. One part I really like in the book is how after each section there is an Action Plan to help the reader to actively think and set themselves apart from the average person that is either following a trend or playing catch-up.
At the beginning you may find it hard to completely wrap your mind on where Pugliano is going, but after a couple of chapters you’ll fall right in. You may even find you have a fire lit inside you, ready to meet the future head-on.
