How can you cultivate a Futurist Mindset? And, why is this approach to life so important?
According to Jake, a few of the top takeaways from our episode focused on cultivating a futurist mindset include:
Futurists help leaders and people better understand the future, and being a Futurist is a real thing! Universities have teaching courses, degrees and certifications in strategic foresight (my certificate is from the University of Houston).
We create our future in the present moment.
Achieving your desired future is possible. How? You must combine methodology with mindset. One of the first steps includes knowing what preferred future you want to achieve and experience. You can do this by creating a Vivid Visual Vision, which blends fun with the future:
In 3-5 years out what do you want to do and experience?
Use Crayons, Paints, any medium to make the vision as vivid as possible – make it your own whole brain, whole soul process
Get below the surface and become very self-aware and honest about your future
Proactively pause and find out what you want – step away from the demand and create a new model – become mindful
