Video Summary:
  • “Whose idea of the future are you creating?” This is usually the first question I ask when I start working with someone. Because the truth is most people are living by someone else’s idea of the future.
  • This the fundamental problem with our relationship to the future: we allow someone else to set the parameters for the kind of future we create.
  • As a futurist, I’ve come to realize that my most important job isn’t helping people PREPARE for the future, it’s helping them CREATE it.
  • That means HOW they’re thinking about the future, the ideas they’re challenging, the questions they’re asking, the alternatives they’re imagining are more important than any prediction or forecast I could give them.
