Preparing for tomorrow’s panel at Fast Company’s Innovation Uncensored event in New York has been an interesting process. That’s because I’ve been asked to describe how I predict the future rather than what the future will look like. This topic caused me to focus my attention inward, rather than looking outward as I usually do.

Accurately predicting the future can be challenging. As Niels Bohr, a Danish physicist who received the 1922 Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum mechanics, once said, “Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future.”

While predicting the future isn’t an exact science, it can be accomplished with surprising accuracy. Here’s how I do it.

It is important to note that there are dozens of techniques that people use to predict the future. The key to success is determining which processes and tools work best for the way you think and work.

If you would like to learn more, come see my colleagues and me at Fast Company’s Innovation Uncensored event as we discuss how future thinking works, and the big ideas and solutions that will be coming into play in the near and distant future. If you can’t make it, I’d love to know what you think, along with which techniques and processes you use to better understand the future.
