The safest way to know the future is to create it. But to create it, you must have a fairly good idea about it.
Here is how:
“1. Know All The Facts.
… You need to be rooted in the real world, and you need to be rigorous.
Before you start anything, you need to gather as much data as possible, and then crunch it, which can mean combining data points, but often means discarding data points as well.
2. Live And Breathe Your Space.
… You need to be embedded in your space’s social and intellectual networks, and you need to talk to the people who are smarter than you, embedded in the space, and learn from them.
This creates a virtuous circle: talking to smart people makes you smarter, which makes smart people want to talk with you.
3. Forget Everything I’ve Just Said.
… forget everything you know. …
Clear your mind. Think about other stuff. It sounds silly, but what matters is putting yourself in a frame of mind where you’re looking at the situation from a new angle, and realizing that by only focusing yourself on your area of expertise you will miss things.”
Give it a try.
The 1st is easy,
the 2nd you just have to do,
the 3rd is the toughest.
But you can do it
– or give me a call.
