The good thing about y’our future — unlike y’our past — is that it is always in the making and therefore it is y’ours to create, make and be GREAT.

My talk at the 5Th International Conference on Time Perspective (13/7/2021)

Who wants to have a GREAT future?

By “GREAT” I mean a good future where you flourish and thrive, where you are resilient and feel that you are evolving, where your actions matter and transcend you so that future generations will be able to have a great future, too.

In all honesty isn’t this what we all want at…


How to create a G.R.E.A.T. bucket list for y’our future.

This conversation was inspired after listening to the radio show (B) De Wereld van Sophie where author Joost de Vries (NL) tells about the absurdity of a bucket list. While I get what Joost said, that many bucket lists are only for personal benefits, I see how we can create meaningful bucket lists that serve a higher purpose and the future of humanity.

The ensuing benefits on y’our health and wellbeing from futurizing y’ourself.

Every decision and choice you make has an impact on your future and the future of the people around you. Men, women, children, people you know, people you don’t know and will never meet, people who are not yet born, and people who will live well beyond your lifespan. How much and how far into the future your influence reaches is unknown, but the fact that you will have an impact on others is beyond question.

At the same time, as others are influenced by your decisions and choices, your words, your behaviour and your actions, so are you by…


How to empower yourself to flourish and thrive in a fast-changing and challenging world

“All that was ‘normal’ has now evaporated; we have entered postnormal times, the in-between period where old orthodoxies are dying, new ones have not yet emerged, and nothing really makes sense. To have any notion of a viable future, we must grasp the significance of this period of transition which is characterised by three c’s: complexity, chaos and contradictions.

Postnormal times demands, that we abandon the ideas of ‘control and management’, and…


How to empower employees to flourish and thrive in a fast-changing and challenging world

In these fast-changing times, taking care of employee health and wellbeing with clarity is vital for creating a good future where employees flourish and organisations thrive. This will require a new holistic and future-minded collaborative approach to health and wellbeing which promotes personal health responsibility and futurization. A holistic approach that incorporates futures thinking on purpose and enhances employees’ ability to adapt, self-manage (health) and flourish in the flow of evolution (wellbeing).

The next 10 years will bring more changes to humanity than the past 100 years. (Gerd Leonhard)
