Future Think: How to Think Clearly in a Time of Change
The Untrapped Mind will help you discard the blinders that keep you from seeing what's really happening around you -- so you can anticipate waves of change, and ride them to unprecedented success. Two leading futurists reveal the breakthrough thinking techniques they've developed to liberate your mind from its old assumptions, and sensitize it to the earliest signals of change - so you can start responding while your competitors are still asleep. Edie Weiner and Arnold Brown show how to overcome both personal and institutional biases, so you can see the big picture: both the forest and the trees. You'll learn how to recognize when trends aren't linear, and when tomorrow won't be 'just like today, only more so.' The authors show how a football game can help you clarify your priorities in attracting and retaining customers . . . How the history of railroads can put the Internet into perspective . . . How the 'Law of Large Numbers' helps you recognize the drivers behind such powerful forces as deviancy and terrorism . . . and much more.
