“When data is no longer in your hands.”


taken information

For the longest, information has been used to people’s benefit. No matter if it’s organizations or for personal use. But what happens when that information gets into the wrong hands? When someone who is an opportunist seeking to take your personal data and create an entire alternate identity. And what’s sad is that there is nothing that can be done. If the person is not caught they will be able to run up a bill in your name. Unless the authorities capture them, they will continue to live as you. That will only become more of a problem the more tech creeps into our lives.

internet police

Are we going to see less police on the streets and more behind desk. I wrote something similar to this topic in the past where cops will become more desk duty. Because the violent crimes are becoming too risky. And the odds of getting caught are higher. So you will start to see more digital crimes because the anonymity on the internet gives you the ability to hide behind a fake profile. So now you can do as you please without much attaching you to your crimes. Now, there is a paper trail, but that trail is one long string to nowhere. So that means protecting yourself even more in the future.

getting better

So, when the technology increases, so will the capabilities of the criminal. Eventually, there will be a need for hand and thumb prints, then using alcohol to wipe down the print. But of course someone will figure out how to manipulate the machine used to do so. Then there will have to be even more measures for the these people so that others don’t follow suit. But is there ever a way of getting better so that criminals can’t penetrate. And the answer to that would be never. Because all security is created by humans, so of course another human will be able to work around the system.

punishments

The laws and the punishments for breaking those laws will of course be stiff. As a matter of fact, the laws may be so stiff that the punishment could be worse than the majority of the crimes in the future. Why, well because if you can steal an identity, you can implicate people in other crimes they know nothing about. So you might see digital crimes up there with murder, rape, and strong armed robbery.

CHA-CHING: WHAT’S MORE IMPORTANT IN A CAREER MONEY OR HAPPINESS

“Full wallet or full heart.”


making bank

All of us hope to have a fun and interesting job that we can go to everyday that will make us a lot of money. But is money alone the thing that keeps us coming to work everyday? What about the fulfillment you receive form walking into the building. Does that not mean anything? And that’s when you have to ask yourself the question of what is more important money or happiness? And yes, making money will afford you to do the things that you wanted to do for so long. So yes, there is this link between money and happiness. Yet, they can be separate as well.

internalized importance

You make over six figures a year, you shop, you go on vacations, and dine at fine restaurants. But there is still something missing about your job and that is the fact that you don’t like what you do. And for so many people, they ask how is this possible. They can’t understand why someone with so much money each year can’t like what they do. But it happens because either the job has ran its course, things become too redundant, or you don’t like the people you work with. So now you have this internal pain. But for a lot of people, they work jobs that they didn’t plan of working in life.

dough is important

Money isn’t everything, but it’s everything. And you don’t realize how important it is until you’re struggling to make ends meet. You learn really fast how much it matters when you don’t have it. It’s fine and all to have dreams and goals, but you have to be practical about your life. You don’t like your job and seek happiness, fine. But be able to sustain your current life or be prepared to downsize. And that is tough once you’ve grown accustomed to your life you have built. You might be an executive, but always had a passion for painting. A life as an artist might bring in average American income while that executive life could bring in deeper six figure money. So it’s fine to have what you love, but be prepared to make some serious financial adjustments.
