What Will You Be Able To Do in 2027?

Figuring out where to go for dinner or what to wear to work can sometimes be difficult for people so asking what you’ll be doing next week, next month or in 17 years can be downright impossible, right?

Would you be closer on some of your “plans” or do you think you’d be “way off?” Could you wait patiently until 2027 to find out how you did back in 2010?

I saw an interesting post yesterday on a blog from David Meerman Scott. Scott is a respected marketer, blogger and writer and recently co-authored a fun book – Marketing Lessons from the Grateful Dead: What Every Business Can Learn from the Most Iconic Band in History with HubSpot founder Brian Halligan.

In the post (click here to read full post) Scott shared the video below from AT&T’s marketing campaign from 1993. While not perfect, the folks at AT&T have come pretty close to some of their “far out” ideas from 1993.

So what are you waiting for? Grab a pen and pad of paper or power up the Flip Video camera and start telling the world what you’re going to be doing in 2027.

I hope I’ll still be building relationships…solving problems…and having fun.

    Hi Sean – thanks for pointing to my stuff. I was amazed by this video. So many predictions were spot on. But they seemed so futuristic at the time!

    David – Thanks for checking in. I loved the video and was amazed at how accurate they were. Just think, when we were kids, we used to think the future would be more like The Jetsons or Knight Rider.

    Now wehere is my jet pack and talking car?

    Keep up the great work. I am honored that you've checked in on my blog.
