There are over a billion people on Facebook. There are over half a billion people on Twitter. All of the social networks have millions of users. It’s not a mystery as to how social media is huge. If you say it’s because people can now talk to each other faster, you’d be wrong.
The reason why social media is huge is because it’s revolutionary. Social media dramatically improved one aspect of life. The fact that social media improved human interaction is just a coincidence.
3D printing is going to be really huge. It’s not because you can now print 3D objects that 3D printing is going to be huge. 3D printing is going to be huge because it’s a dramatic improvement of one aspect of life. If you hand make something, you can use a replicator to create a 3D file of what you handmade. Creating your own unique product couldn’t be any easier.
Cars are huge. Almost everyone has a car. There are plenty of traffic jams to account for that. The reason why cars are huge is because cars were a dramatic improvement. Instead of riding on a horse when you go somewhere, you can drive in a car (assuming you have a license). Cars go a lot faster than horses, but even when a car is going slower than a horse, it has its benefits. The car can go on as long as there’s gasoline left in the tank. A horse can only go on until it gets tired or hungry.
If you can find a way to dramatically improve an aspect of life whether that aspect is travel, communication, or something else, you will become a member of the elite.
