My New Publishing Home

The world has changed, and more change is coming. 

Everyone wants to know: How bad can things get? How do I keep up? How do I find safe passage? How do I keep from getting screwed?

As a general rule, we tend to shy away from cliches, but, on the other hand, if the boot fits, we put it on: Great change creates great uncertainty, but also great opportunity. 

And yet, there’s a caveat to this well-worn statement. Here’s what only a few recognize: In the midst of massive change, it’s not enough to try to do things incrementally better. 

Those who dare to have exponential impact will reap outsized rewards in the coming months and years, while those who try to change things only marginally -- or try to rearrange the furniture on the Titanic -- will get left behind. The former is much harder to do, but the impact, and the rewards, are exponentially greater. 

I’ve been a part of St. Paul Research for a long time and it has been a great journey, but now, we’re moving on to something bigger -- something better. 


But don’t worry, everything from Technology Profits Daily you know and love will remain the same. The only changes will be additions to my premium services.

So now, in our polarized world, my new publishing home Paradigm Press Group seeks out what we call “third thing.” That term might be unfamiliar to you, so let’s unpack it first.

A Tension of Opposites

I’m sure you’ve noticed. Modern life is a constant clash of opposites. In social, political, and economic life, we are expected -- by our peers, our politicians, and the elites -- to identify with a side and then defend that side, warts and all, even to our own detriment. This not only wreaks havoc in our personal lives, but it also creates widespread chaos and confusion, putting a strain on the very systems that keep us comfortable, productive, and alive. To add insult to injury, powerful special interests -- yes, on both sides! -- gleefully scrub salt in the wounds, and for their own selfish interests and agendas.

But, here’s the secret…

Contrary to popular instinct, groundbreaking innovation, insight, and discovery rarely happens on either extreme end of the polarities. Perhaps paradoxically, the sides are almost never on the “right side of history.” The real magic happens somewhere closer to the middle; in the tension of the opposites. 

It happens by carefully considering both sides and rising above them. It happens through transcending and including previous ideas, insights, and discoveries. It happens through the recognition of a third thing: a new idea or a new way of looking at and acting in the world that’s fundamentally different from the polarized world that everyone else passively accepts.

The Third Things 

You see, these “third things” are precisely how civilizations grow, evolve, innovate, and do more with less. They are the building blocks of paradigm shifts. Throughout history, those who discover the third thing tend to hold special insight into how the future will unfold. Such forward-thinking souls react not to the way the world is, but instead tend to respond to the way that the world is becoming. That often makes them seem strange, sometimes even eccentric. But, as you can imagine, it also gives them an unfair advantage. 

At Paradigm Press, we’re hunting for the uncommon, exceptional, unique, rare, and the unparalleled. We scavenge for the extraordinary. In other words, we are foragers of third things. We’re not entirely unlike our intrepid ancestors, who, all around the world, sought better lives for themselves, their loved ones, and their communities. Whereas our ancestors sought out new lands and new treasures, however, we pursue new ways to look at and act in the world that can help our readers live happier, healthier, and more abundant lives.

We do so by also cutting through the noise of the mainstream media, politicians, and global elites… and by searching for new opportunities and new systems that could render them obsolete.

So, I hope you’re as excited as I am about my new publishing home!
