A future stranger than fiction • Changes of Tomorrow

It's so tempting to make predictions. Who will win the election? Which team will become  champions? Or How we will live in the future? Unfortunately, our predictions are flawed. They are made based on the reality of how the world is today, and rarely can we imagine a completely different, truly innovative, and disrupted future.

"Invention requires a long-term willingness to be misunderstood. You do something that you genuinely believe in, that you have conviction about, but for a long period of time, well-meaning people may criticize that effort ... if you really have the conviction that they're not right, you need to have that long-term willingness to be misunderstood. It's a key part of invention." From "When you change the world and nobody notices" in Collaborative Fund.
