When we think about the future it can be difficult to feel that we have any control. We aren't confident that we can take actions and make decisions that help determine what happens next. We want to feel prepared, hopeful and equipped, and to face the future with optimism. Or, better yet, change the future. Jane McGonigal, a renowned future forecaster, reveals that 'unimaginable' events aren't unimaginable before they happen. It is possible to see them coming and it's a mindset that can be learned by engaging with tools, games and ideas that will allow you to dive into the future before you live it. By learning to think the unthinkable and imagine the unimaginable you can better plan for a future you'd like to see. You can then adapt to new challenges, reduce anxiety, and build hope and resilience.
