2030 Predictions

Some optimism; some pessimism.

    1. There will be an even greater divide between the haves and the have-nots.

    Not only with money, but in fitness, mental health, and physical health as well.

    2. Having extraordinary creative abilities will be the only thing that separates humans from artificial intelligence.

    Keep writing those 10 ideas a day.

    3. Humans will finally return to the moon.

    It's 50/50 if NASA does it first or private industry.

    4. AI will advance to the point where it will start to put people in standard corporate jobs (accounting, marketing communications, HR, etc.) out of work.

    Start working on that side hustle now.

    5. Automation will be so omnipresent that it will be possible to go months without directly interacting with another human being.

    We're already well on our way after COVID.

    6. Suicide rates will be at the highest on record.

    Largely due to #4 and #5 above.

    7. An ever-increasing number of people will 'opt out' of the standard life of college > corporate job > marriage > home purchase > kids > retirement in favor of lives of adventure, curiosity, and cobbling together gigs to pay the bills.

    Designing our own lives versus taking the standard path handed to us on a platter when we're kids will not only be more appealing, it will actually be more financially secure and a hell of a lot more fun.

    8. Birth rates in all first-world countries will plummet below 1.

    With everyone hustling for gigs and out having fun, there's no room for kids. Not to mention they'll become so unaffordable that even some people who truly want them won't do it because of the cost.

    9. 1 out of 2 people will own a dog.

    Because of #8 above.

    10. Online education will advance to the point where it will begin to be normal and acceptable for kids to drop out of high school in favor of online learning and building internet businesses.

    This one might be a little far-fetched, but I could imagine parents being okay with kids dropping out of school if they're learning more online and they've built businesses that are killing it...all before they can drive a car.
