Quotes
Two things to remember in life. Take care of your thoughts when you are alone, and take care of your words when you are with people.
First prize is to do something big. Second prize is to do something. Success rarely comes to people who do nothing.
Things turn out best for people who make the best of how things turn out. - John Wooden

Tech Trends - The future is exciting
I love finding tech and tools I can adopt immediately to improve my life. After reading The Future is Faster Than You Think I now appreciate the speed at which ground-breaking but seemly very distant tech can progress. My horizons have shifted to also explore exciting tech trends which may land in the next 10 years.
This is ridiculously interesting, and exciting! Here are my favourite recent examples which highlight the pace of change:
  • Driverless taxis are now launching in Beijing 🤖🚕
  • Monkeys can now control computer games with their minds 🐒
  • 117 years after the first flight we now have helicopters on Mars
  • Bonus: Humans can now live to be 117!

The world's oldest living person was alive when the Wright Brothers flew at Kitty Hawk and when the first helicopter flew on Mars.

My insurance: If it's a doctor that you seek to see, answer my here riddles three / Go to the wrong one and in debt you'll be / But which one is right? You won't hear from me
