“So remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet….Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up. Unleash your imagination. Shape the future.”
A new book about Stephen Hawking came out this month, and reading excerpts like the one above reminded me that our future is not fixed. Among all the reports of robots taking our jobs and Brexit ruining our economy, it’s easy to forget that the future is something we shape every day with the choices we make and the stories we tell.
So here’s my contribution of stories and knowledge that might help shape our future – I hope you enjoy it.
