Tip#240: Evolve With The Times - Quantum of Solace
The world is always in a state of evolution, globally, culturally and personally. We are always in a state of change. That's why it is key to learn how to adapt to changing times.
Growing up I loved watching the original Star Trek TV show and, later in my adult life, all the other series and movies. I loved seeing the futuristic technology they used like the hand held communicator. Now our technology has created cell phones that are even smaller than the original Star Trek communicators!
Quantum of Solace
The latest James Bond movie Quantum of Solace has also evolved to take Bond into current times. It presents amazing technology that combines science fiction and science fact. The film shows amazing touch screens, glass wall displays and active graphics executing a vast amount of information at rapid speeds.
Now this technology is being seen in other movies like the remake of Day the Earth Stood Still and on TV shows like C.S.I I hope this means that this futuristic technology already exists in some form and that we will all get to utilize it personally. Microsoft Surface and the Apple iPhone already offer elements of these exciting futuristic features.
The James Bond brand has also evolved and adapted to changing times. In the new Bond film his character has been updated for our current times as a rougher and more humanized man. And the villain incorporates the global importance of environmental issues such as the value of water. The Bond franchise has experienced new success because the filmmakers understood the importance of evolving the brand for today's world.
The internet is also another resource that has evolved how we communicate with one another. If you are still not aware of the tremendous value of social online resources like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter just spend a little time each week to get to know how these powerful tools can help you achieve your own goals.
Learn To Adapt
So let all these examples reflect the importance for adapting to changing times. Learn to incorporate new technologies into your life or work. Learn to adapt to our current economic challenges. Learn how you can be a better person.
Evolving is about keeping a flexible mind and building an optimistic mindset. It is actually important for the brain to stay active at any age. Get excited about the new technologies all around you. Let it inspire you to learn more of how you can benefit from these fantastic tools. In the end you are helping yourself to evolve!
