Decision making and creativity go hand in hand. I’m interested in books and tools that can help me think clearly because we all have brain bugs, aka cognitive biases, that hinder us from making great decisions. Only a handful of people actively work to keep biases away. How do they do that?
I believe there is an incredible deficit in critical thinking. Those of us who actively think critically are seen as negative from people who just want to be told exactly what they want to hear and never have their thoughts and beliefs challenged.
Are you fed up with the status quo? Or are you like most everyone else and just go along with what is? Mavericks, misfits, rebels, renegades, trouble makers, whatever you want call us; we get a bad rap. We are seen as the enemy of stability because we’re not afraid to shake things up; and most of the times shaking things up is what’s fun for us.
One of the biggest challenges we have to tackle in the Next Economy is upskilling people. Heck, we’ve been living in a digital Economy for some time now and most people still use their computer or mobile phone to send emojis, animated gifs and memes to each other. That’s about as much as they know what to do with computing!
