The future does not happen by accident, it is based on
yesterday’s actions. This does not mean that it is easy to predict
what will happen tomorrow, but it also means that tomorrow
should not be a total surprise. Even if we cannot tell where the
raindrops will fall, it is worth knowing when the hurricane will
hit land. If we choose to avoid speculating about the future,
then we are deciding to stand still while it crashes over us. This
presentation explores the future and how we might choose to
think about it and perform in it.
