Virtual reality is coming.
It’s not just for video games. It’s not just science fiction. We already live in virtual worlds. Look around you. Everyone has their face buried in their phone screen.
What will simply happen is the screen will no longer be something you hold in your hands. The awkward straps and head gear you see with early virtual reality devices is not how it’s always going to be.
Computers used to be the size of a city block. People thought a computer would never, ever fit inside a home.
The inevitability is that virtual reality will become more seamless, effortless to use, prevalent, and get closer and closer to looking like real life.
It doesn’t matter whether you like the idea of it or not. This is the future you will live in. And it’s not something you can put off thinking about.
You need to be preparing right now. If you want to succeed in an increasingly digital world, there are things you need to be doing right now to prepare.
You need to be able to interact with humans and do it well. You need to be able to present yourself with confidence and speak fluently. All technology does is make human interactions more seamless. The eventuality is that online human conversations will become indistinguishable from face-to-face interaction.
In this episode, we paint a picture of the future you’ll live in and give you some practical things you can, and should, be doing today if you want to succeed.
