What Boards, CEOs and Business Leaders Can Learn From the Jetsons

Sometimes to find answers to today's problems, we have to go back to the things we enjoyed and valued in the past.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

I took some time and watched Jetsons: The Movie the other day. The movie was made in 1990, over 30 years ago. I had always been a fan as I loved watching it as a child. I imagined that their depiction was what the world would be like sometime in the future.

To a certain extent, it has. Like the Jetsons, we now have face-to-face telephone calls (via Zoom and Webex). We have the technology for flying cars, are preparing for commercial space travel and are looking to inhabit Mars. In addition, many individuals, companies and organizations use robots for everything from house cleaning, manufacturing and as toy pets.
