2020 is just around the corner!

Netflix releases its first original series in 2013 and Twitter IPOs.

Alibaba IPOs in 2014 setting the stage for Jack Ma to becomeone of the richest men in China.

ISIS strikes on three continents in 2015 and Autopilot software for Tesla was released for customers for the first time.

We get the iphone X from Apple and the first reusable rocketfrom SpaceX in 2017 and Donald Trump is inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States.

In 2018 boomski. inc. was founded while North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in shakes hands at the historic summit in attempts to end their decades long conflict between the two countries.

In 2019 we see Tom Brady win his 6th Super Bowl Championship and drones coming out of an Amazon blimp. The blimp was a CGI video based off a patent filed by Amazon in 2014 of course, but wow; Amazon might just take over the world!

As we get closer to the end of the decade, it seems kind of like atoilet paper roll. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

What a decade it has been though.

It seems like the world has changed so much in such a short period of time.

Things that seemed like just imagination, dreams or science fiction are now realities.

Albert Einstein talked about imagination and said that it was probably one of the most important things a person could possess. He said that it was more important than knowledge because knowledge is limited, but imagination has no boundaries. It is a power that can take us from where we currently are to where we want to go. It is not limited by the current knowledge of our time, but is able to extend past limitations and can go as big as we want it to go.

As we go into the New Year, let’s try to imagine the possibilities of the next decade. Let’s go to where we want to go. Let’s have an amazing year in 2020!
