WHAT NEXT? Time travel for fun and profit [this blog in books #3]

20 August 2021

recently wrote about taking articles from this blog and collating them into a series of books. 

Ostensibly, the books above are short works of non-fiction. With the exception of Luck, however, they’re fictional – in the sense that they don’t technically exist (outside of my mind or this blog).

Today, I want to share What next? – Time travel for fun and profit.

When we make decisions, we help create the future – for ourselves and others.

When we make decisions, we are also speculating about the future. What will the consequences be? Are my decisions likely to result in good outcomes or bad outcomes? What are the probabilities, and what are the potential payoffs?

Embedded in all these decisions are assessments about external factors – what the world will look like in the days, weeks, months, years, and decades ahead. 

(Note that all articles are from 2020 or 2021, unless specified otherwise.)


If you have any specific thoughts about what might happen in the future, especially in a domain where you have a special interest and expertise, I'd love to hear from you!

About the author 

Sonnie Bailey

Sonnie likes telling people that he’s a former Olympic power walker, a lion tamer, or a popular author of erotic, supernatural, mystery novellas. Sometimes he says he was in a band that opened for Robbie Williams. None of these are true.
