The morning is bright. All systems are GO! It’s a good day for blasting off into space, wouldn’t you say? Are you ready? Got your helmet on? Suit’s all zippered up? Check your oxygen, put on your gloves and sit back. It’s going to be a ride like nothing you have ever known before, and it’s going to last about twenty years.
The world had changed so rapidly in the past ten years that we can only get ready, check all systems and hold tight to what we know and trust because the next twenty years are going to be a blast off into a space toward which we know very little if anything at all.
Technology is running at a pace that’s become dizzying. It doesn’t look like it’s about to slow down any time soon. This means that our children and their children will be flying through space, technological space, and dealing with changing environments at a pace we simply cannot imagine.
That’s no reason for us to panic. They are being born into it. They are growing into it and with it. It’s us who are going to have to deal with all the newness as if we had just landed on this planet.
So, what can we do about all this? I don’t know. But of one thing I am fairly sure… if we provide ourselves and our children and grandchildren with a solid foundation and a firmament on which they can plant their feet so they can deal with the coming changes, we are doing just about all we can. And the way to create a soft landing for our progeny, our future, is to obtain for ourselves a little piece of land with a house on it and establish a safe haven called a home.
And that’s why we are in the business of helping families sell and buy safe havens… homes.
That’s what we love to do.
