The Layman’s Guide To The End Of The World (part one)
In case you didn’t get the memo, the world as you knew it is over.
The future is going to be bold and bright but right now, the transition, is going to be a bitch.
So here’s a pocket guide, (suitable for cellphones and ipods) to get you through the real economic mess.
This Is The First Day Of Your Life
Though it will seem counter-intuitive it’s important that you forget what you know.
No one cares how you used to do things because the way we used to do things don’t work.
The financial system is just one of a long and growing list of things we have to rebuild with a complete open mind. Ask Irving Azoff.
Start looking at the world the same way you see it when a pretty girl you’ve never seen before (in your favorite fuck-you pumps) walks into the room.
You feel wide open with possibilities.
It feels like hope.
You Are Too Small To Fail
My friend Howard Lindzon coined a phrase a few days ago that should be a mantra to the future. “You are too small to fail.
That whole ‘thinking big’ crap is so late 20th century.
Build your shit so that it can’t fail.
Because he’s too fucking small to fail.
Your job now is to build your life in such a way that you’re too small to fail.
Think smaller, not bigger.
One of the better (and probable) explanations of the future is written here.
It looks bleak.
But that’s not the end game.
The end game is cheap energy, more freedom, less poverty and more opportunity.
The truth is, no one is walking out of this mess clean.
When the dust finally settles you probably won’t end up rich.
But if you play your cards right you may just end up happier.
And that ain’t a bad trade for a little turbulance.Army Of One, money comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
