The mobile industry talks too much nonsense. It is an industry that spends unjustifiable amounts of time forecasting the future of hologram emitting, location based near field communications.

The mobile industry talks too much nonsense. It is an industry that spends unjustifiable amounts of time forecasting the future of hologram emitting, location based near field communications. By forever discussing the next industry milestone we make our jobs easier today. We are asphyxiated by the next big thing.

This makes it very difficult for those looking to get into the industry. What can you believe? Where can you find out what the industry opinion is? Who should you be listening to? 

The answer is to listen to yourself. Other people will have ideas but nobody knows. Of course you should read what other people write and keep right up-to-date with the latest and most innovative product releases. But you really do need to believe that it is your ideas that could shape the direction of the industry. Do this and you can’t even picture where you’ll find yourself in 10 years time.
