If your like most people, it’s pretty easy to get “derailed” today by unexpected and “unpredictable” events, some that seem to come from nowhere and others that emerge more slowly “beneath the radar”. Many times you see it coming, but with everything else on your “plate”, it’s easier to pay attention to less “painful” things. Everything is different now. The factors that are disrupting the safety and predictability of our everyday lifestyle patterns are escalating and will continue to accelerate in the future.
Now, in this changing environment of increasing noise, how do you do begin to “Futureproof” yourself against events such as
-Unforeseen physical Illness and health problems
-Mental health issues and depression
-Internet attacks and abuse
-Unexpected toxic communication from friends
-Immersion and addiction to negative and harmful media
-Drug and alcohol abuse
-Economic upheavals, financial change, bankruptcy
-Family issues such as separation, abuse, and divorce
-Catastrophic environmental events, floods, fires, climate change
-Family tragedies, illnesses, and the death of a loved one
-Unpredictable housing and living expense changes
-Changes in employment potential
“Futureproofing” is the process of preparing for unexpected and potentially harmful negative future events by developing the critical Center-Point Skills needed to re-balance yourself under disequilibrium and stress. It’s more important now, than at any other moment in history to understand how to continue forward toward maximizing full human potential, under accelerating noise and externally limiting conditions.
“Futureproofing” and Center-Point Skills involve a very specific type of preparation, based on brain science. Because the brain has the potential for re-wiring, even through old age, executive function, including higher critical thinking and creative skills is trainable, not guesswork. Developing the Center-Point skills for the future takes both commitment and awareness, but the journey is well worth it.
While some people have figured these skills out already, others languish in the illusion that life will continue to move along as usual, and that when things do go wrong, they’ll figure it out at the time that the negative events occur. But, if you’ve noticed, it doesn’t work that way. The people that DO figure things out and manage to turn lemons into lemonade have a different set of skills, and it’s those skills interacting with our rapidly changing environment that make the difference. FutureWise is committed to products and programs that develop the critical Center-Point Skills, including Time Design™, 5 Step P.A.U.S.E®, The Inner I.Q.®, Inner Theater, and Circles of Influence. Everything is different now, and maintaining equilibrium and balance in a culture of noise, demands the right level of awareness and preparation to truly become FutureWise.
