No DVD, no satellite TV, no mobile phones,no PDA’s, no TiVos, no iPods, no digital cameras, no PlayStation, no wii, no blogs…
As of March 2010 the world wide web has 20 billion web pages (and change, lots of change).
The population of the planet (this planet) is approx 6.8 billion, estimated to reach 9 billion by 2040 or 50.That a lot of…us.
Then there is Kurzweil and The Singularity.It refers to the future point at which technological change, propelled by the explosive growth of artificial intelligence, will accelerate past the point of current human comprehension.
Now that’s comforting – past the point of human comprehension!
In 2011 Frank Kern releases his ‘Ultimate Fighting – MoneyControl Course ‘ for $250,000, with a $300,000 money back guarantee. It sells out before its created.
Within two months there are 453 million money control courses on the internet, all seeming to come from a guy called Matt.
And of course in 2050 Google takes over the world.
But much more important, our credit card bills are climbing at rates they don’t even have scales for yet.
And then there’s Global warming, or not.
Or Climate change, because its getting warmer, or colder.
The financial collapse that threatens capitalism. Or not. That will only happen once in our lifetimes. Or not.
And the earthquakes, why are there so many earthquakes? And the tidal waves and the weird storms and quantum physics and that Super Duper Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland that can produce the end of the world at the touch of a switch. Or cant even turn on. And then there’s cat juggling…
(sorry I just threw that in for no reason)
All that…noise, and people and information and duplication and out of control science and -
Unless the world ends (via @Mayans) December 21st 2012.
The question is what are YOU going to do about it? How can you cope.
Here’s a thought.
Information is just facts, non facts and opinions about things that exist around us. Or stuff they completely made up (which we can ignore)
If it is facts about things that exist around us, then that is something that has always been there (as in NOT NEW), now there’s just a lot of people, and computers, producing words about them.
Nothing NEW has happened (in most cases) just a lot of new voices.
(see that sentence is a repeat of the information in the previous statement. Its just there for the hard of hearing)
Look at the Internet business – just to pick something crazy at random.
You make money online only ONE way – by selling something to a customer.IN fact that’s how business have always been. Always.
Yes the Internet is a new medium and has to be approached differently. But not new. Frank Kern for instance says the Internet allows us for the first time to directly interact with thousands of people (The List) as though they were one individual.As if it were, in fact, a one to one sales call. As if it were a sales made through relationship building.
Well nothing new there. Basic selling.
Now online (typically) you create or have created a digital product (ebook, DVD,Video, audio) about something in a market that people want. Large or small. An then buy or get traffic (PPC, Joint Venture) and offer that traffic something they want.
So there are thousand, hundred of thousands of programs and offers and course on line to help you with that. But despite all the secrets and ninja tricks and undisclosed magical mystery – its all the same.>Because you only do it one way. (yes there are nuances, but unless you are an information hound – forget the nuances)
Pick one you like and seems trustworthy. Go with that till you make money, then think about it.
Where do you want to go next.
That is the key – where do YOU want to go next (not what shiny info object catches you attention) what do you want?
Another example Eban Pagan teaches Master Classes on the psychology behind selling and money. Great stuff.It is. But its what Brain Tracys teaches. Its what Jim Rohn and Bob Proctor and Napoleon Hill taught. It what the master Earl Nightingale taught. And they got their information from…someone.Its not new. Its applied new.
Here’s how you stay sane and alive in this world of noise.
Focus on what you want. And go get that.Pay attention to what you want.That is all you need.
Nothing else is important to you. The rest is noise. And eventually you get used to noise and only filter in the important stuff. To you.
As you learn and change your wants change. Great then its time to focus on that.
Hers the great thing nowadays – no matter what it is, there’s information out there waiting for you. When your ready.
Focus on whats important. To You.Whether its a peaceful relaxing life, a rich life, an exploring life, a relationship, your kids, whatever it might be. At this point in time.
Focus on it. Because that is you. And that is all you need.
Leave the other glittering shiny objects alone – they do nothing for you, they are distractions
Noise.Talk.Just talk. Information for the sake of information for the sake of information for the sake of information…
