Working backwards from the future

Adam Lindemann and I had a chat in Tokyo about how to create the future. I mentioned that when I was at Elon Musk's talk in Hong Kong, the thing I learned most about him was his ability to speak as if the future is certainty.

We discussed a few things:

  • the concept of cybernetics and the need to start from the end vision, and work backwards the tactics
  • How to start at the end vision. This includes blogging, reading, and discussing what that reality looks like. Consciously spending time to create that vision
  • Working backwards tactically how it should be accomplished from now to then
