Long-term thinking and planning is such an ingrained part of everyday life that we tend either not to see it or merely take it for granted. From pensions, retirements, holiday planning, marriage (or divorce) to corporate strategy and choosing the right school for our kids—the assumptions we make about tomorrow tend to be sketchy at best. Why do we so often underplay such important future plans in our lives? One of the main reasons is that we have never been given the right tools with which to think and plan ahead. Futurology—the art of thinking ahead—has often been relegated to science fiction writers and witch doctors. In fact, it's a tool that can actually help us understand and plan for a better future for ourselves. This book, by a leading futurologist, presents the practical tools of long-term thinking and planning for the everyday situations that we all face.
