How do you prepare for the future? From your choice of words in the conversation, to deciding where to invest, to choosing strategies that work, you’re making choices now that affect your results and your life in both the immediate and the distant future. Have you examined the information and the process you use in those decisions?
Humans have always been fascinated with the future. But most of our thinking is still based on the assumption that what worked yesterday will work tomorrow.
The Prediction Trap explains why human base so much of their thinking on the past – and a selectively remembered past at that. It details why and how to most effectively bring others into your thinking – especially people who don’t think like you. It provides practical approaches for analyzing and preparing for the future. And it outlines four major problems facing Western society – problems that you can’t afford to ignore.
More than any other time in the past, the choices we make today affect our futures, and the future of our organizations and our societies.
