Upon publishing this post, everyone [okay, the media at large] is waiting to see what new thing Elon Musk invents [or more interestingly supports].
My question to the general public, and tech fans at large: Is it necessary for you to invent something that has never BEEN before to be successful?
My bet and best guess is NO!
You only need to be smart enough to either USE / integrate what’s been before, and / or what’s going on now, INVEST in what’s going on now (the safest thing to do, with a stop-loss or at least an alarm in place), or to HIRE someone that’s using what’s been before and / or what’s going on now!
You really don’t need to be a genius!
You really only need to be paying attention and somewhat aware of what’s going on, and then make the appropriate adjustment to your own psyche [which is hard enough, more of that later].
