The latest technology shows this…

One of our favorite pastimes as a family is Geocaching. It is a treasure hunt that has taken us to some unbelievable places that we would not have visited otherwise.

This summer it took us to the Sandhills of Southern Saskatchewan and to the highest point in Canada between the Rocky Mountains and Labrador (who knew it was in flat Saskatchewan!).

For those of you that don’t know about geocaching, the last person to find the cache is responsible to replace the object back in its original hiding spot. This is done so the clues match the destination.

My trusty GPS plays backup to try and find those items that seem to have moved. A moving target can be especially challenging when you don’t have the exact coordinates from the last person to find it.

Since the late 1980s, geophysicists have been building a network of hyper-advanced Global Positioning System (GPS) instruments to monitor the Earth.

With this technology, they have discovered something interesting. The Earth’s surface is constantly moving AND changing direction. They use the data to simulate possible future changes and courses of action, something they never could have done before with much accuracy.

Your future is also constantly moving and changing direction. Today, it’s also possible to simulate potential future changes and courses of action.

The first step using the new technology is to determine whether your present plan lands you where you were hoping to go.

In other words, if you keep doing what you are doing now, will it take you to where you want to go?

You know you’re getting old when you stoop to tie your shoelaces and wonder what else you could do while you’re down there.
