Peter and Dan discuss a mindset that is missing from most technologists: one of gratitude and appreciation for past generations’ accomplishments in a non-technological age. These breakthroughs have enabled today’s entrepreneurs to take advantage of exponential technologies.
In this episode:
- Dan reflects on the topic of proactive gratitude. How do you get a sense of appreciation for an experience in a world where everything is continuously provided for you, at low cost, fast and easy… especially when you don’t have to do anything to earn or deserve this efficiency?
- Peter shares his gratitude that we have the ability to even discuss solving world problems. Before, only governments or heads of state could have these discussions. Today, anyone can ‘call their own shot’ at global impact.
- Peter and Dan discuss shifting their mindset from expectation to appreciation and gratitude. They reflect on travel technology and how people complain about a short 45-minute flight delay. If put into perspective, the same trip 100 years ago would have taken months, with the potential of death.
