INSIGHT: The Key To Success?

Peter Nicholson

Part 1: A Successful Trip
Success is everywhere. I’ve been inside several large, successful, tech companies in the Bay Area this week. There is a successful app for everything, or will be shortly. Happiness is a successfully automated life, providing a platform for complete ease. Smart homes and well appointed offices with abundant amenities create space for personal and professional success to flourish. Even the weather here is beautiful and successful, with rarely any rain to interrupt the yogic flow. Technology creates and sustains our success, creates jobs, free office cafeterias, and private, wifi-enabled shuttles to work. Other places appear mundane and less successful in comparison. Technology has intervened and is propelling our evolution, successfully creating its own force of nature with lines of code that disrupt and resolve problems we didn’t know we faced. Sense, measure, analyze, monetize, respond, the success wheel spins effortlessly here, redefining, whether we like it or not, what it means to be successful and human.
