A collective, speculative view of our lives 20 years from now.

I’m preparing a website and podcast about our future in 20 years.

My research includes seeking input from people around the world. (Survey link at the bottom)

Imagine ourselves in 2043….

The survey has 14 questions, and covers a range of topics. For each topic, I ask you to place a cursor between two opposing future perspectives, and to add a few comments. I also ask you to share your ideas about other topics to explore. Overall, the survey takes 15 to 20 minutes.

As a thank you for your contribution of ideas, I’ll be happy to send you a hardback copy of my book The Gig Mindset Advantage, A Bold New Breed.

There’s a place at the end of the survey to request your free copy, and/or to be notified when the survey results are published.

The topics….

  • cities and urban society,
  • wealth distribution,
  • corporations seeking profit or social impact,
  • big data,
  • social media,
  • the arts,
  • education,
  • role of scientists,
  • world governance,
  • climate change,
  • and belief systems.

Thank you in advance, and I look forward to everyone’s ideas, which I will share here later.

Please share this link with your friends and contacts. The more feedback we can collect, the richer the results will be! Thank you.

The survey closes at the end of May, so go for it now!

Let me know if you have any questions, here or by email ( or direct message on Twitter. (

Thank you in advance for your contribution.
