Feeling stuck?

Ask yourself, “If all obstacles were removed, and I could direct what is done, what would I do?”

Our Futures Thinking exercise is a straightforward yet powerful way to engage in discussions about the future. Whether as a self-reflection tool or with your team, the seven question framework is a great addition to your futures thinking toolkit. In fact, we use the last two questions ALL the time in our own business develop and strategy efforts at The Futures School.



Before beginning your foresight journey, it is helpful to first uncover how you personally think about the future. Complete this exercise from an individual or a professional
perspective; if your foresight efforts are team-based, use this questionnaire to initiate a discussion about the future.

It only takes a few moments of self-reflection, but these seven questions are extremely powerful for understanding our own mindset about the future.
