At last year’s Future Conference, futurist, writer, blogger, and futurist in chief, Jason Fried, said that marketing should be the “ultimate form of self-awareness.” Well, to be honest, it kind of is. We can do marketing when we want to, we can follow our impulses. But most of the time, we do it without thinking about it.
The problem is that our impulses are often just that – impulses. We make our decisions based on the way we feel, without thinking about the long-term consequences of our actions. The best we can do when we make a decision is to act on our feelings, and make sure our actions don’t have any lasting negative effects on society. If we do that we are much better off than we would be if we didn’t act on our impulses.
As it turns out, most of the time we act on the way we feel without thinking about the long-term consequences. This is because we tend to become so engrossed in the moment that we fail to see the long-term impact of our actions. The best we can do when we act on our feelings is to act on our feelings, and make sure our actions dont have any lasting negative effects on society.
It’s unfortunate that this kind of thinking is the predominant one on the internet. There are several causes of this, the most important for me being that a lot of people lack the ability to stop themselves when they feel the urge to act. They want to, but they fail and then they feel guilty.
I think that this is a major contributing factor to the lack of focus in the modern world. I mean, we want to do things because we feel like we should, not because we really have any control over our actions.
I’m not saying we should all go on a murder spree. But I do think that we should be aware of our impulses when they’re strong, and that we should try to stop ourselves if we start feeling like we’re being a dick. I can’t say that I’m a fan of Futura Marketing myself, but I think it’s a very important part of the internet.
Futura Marketing is the term used to describe a trend of people trying to sell a product or service to people at the same time they are actually making the product or service themselves. For example, when I was at university, I sold myself as an expert in X (as opposed to X being something I already knew). This is a trend I think Futura Marketing is doing well at.
It goes back to the old question of “Do my peers think I’m a dick?” We’re social creatures and in this day and age of the internet, we like to think that we don’t have to deal with people we don’t like much in real life.
In other words, we like to think that we can do things without having to get in trouble, but the truth is that we have to deal with people we do not like in real life. In fact, some of our biggest social problems come from people we don’t like, such as people who are racist, sexist, homophobic, or even violent.
The problem is that we can’t get rid of the people we don’t like and there are always ways to push them away, no matter how many times we’ve tried. And while we’re at it, let’s not forget that even people we don’t like, like to hang with, take advantage of us.
