10 Years Ago and 10 Years Into the Future

10 years ago…….

If you had told me that…..

  • We would have an African-American for President
  • Tiger Woods would be divorced and disgraced
  • Michael Jackson would be dead
  • A show like Glee would be crazy popular
  • Amazon.com and Zappos.com merged and Tony Hsieh’s book would be #1 on the NY Times Bestsellers List
  • One of the largest banks in the US would be out of business due a bank failure
  • The Post Office is going to shut down Saturday mail deliver
  • NCUA would be suing itself
  • 1 out of every 200 homes will be foreclosed upon and
  • I’d be a guest blogger for a lawyer’s site, I would’ve thought you were:

a. Crazy
b. Both optimistic and pessimistic
c. On to something

So if I had a crystal ball and could see 10 years down the road, I would make these predictions:

  • The Rolling Stones will still be touring, sponsored by AARP
  • The Post Office will be privatized
  • Another major bank in the U.S. will collapse
  • Tiger Woods will have retired
  • McDonalds and Jack in the Box merge to make “Jack n’ the Mac”
  • Steve Jobs is rumored to be running for President in the next election
  • CUNA and NAFCU will finally be on the same page and in the same house, and
  • Credit unions experienced a boom and now hold 25% of the marketplace

What do you think?
