When we think about the future it can be difficult to feel
that we have any control. We aren't confident that we can
take actions and make decisions that help determine
what happens next. We want to feel prepared, hopeful
and equipped, and to face the future with optimism. Or,
better yet, change the future. But how do we map out our
lives when it feels impossible to predict what the world
will be like next week, let alone next year? Jane
McGonigal, a renowned future forecaster, reveals that
'unimaginable' events aren't unimaginable before they
happen. It is possible to see them coming and it's a
mindset that can be learned by engaging with tools,
games and ideas that will allow you to dive into the future
before you live it. By learning to think the unthinkable and
imagine the unimaginable you can better plan for a future
you'd like to see. And by seeing what's coming faster, you
can adapt to new challenges, reduce anxiety, and build
hope and resilience.
