Daily Habits for Better Foresight

As in all areas of life and business it is what you do daily that determines your success. You still can focus your attention on today’s demands and think about the future.

Here are 5 Daily Habits for Better Foresight that Richard Lum, PhD ‎@kikilo recommends for people wanting to do futures research and foresight work.

You don’t have to be a professional futurists to raise your awareness and be open to future possibilities. You just need to pay attention to different perspectives and ask questions………….

RadarExpose yourself to lots of stuff: professional futurists usually do this through scanning, but many are also avid readers and love to constantly learn new subjects.

BrokenBreak out of bounds: explore other sectors, industries, and regions; this will give you alternative and provocative perspectives from which to view and reframe your own industry or community.

VisualizationThink (and take notes) visually: “visualization” is certainly all the rage right now, and for good reason: it helps tremendously with think­ing through complex and interrelated issues.

WhyKeep asking why?: the world is in fact a complex, densely inter­dependent set of systems… that means that we have to do a lot of probing into connections, causes, and our own assumptions.

WhatPrompt others to consider what if?: we also need to keep every­one’s minds (including our own) flexible by asking about not just what we expect to happen, but what logically could happen.
