Recently, Mark Finnern and SAP hosted an “open mike” Future Salon. I led a discussion on “From Great Potential to Not-So-Great Results – What are we missing?” (link: https://t.co/shxaWiaF , starting around minute 26:20 and ending around minute 38) People presented concepts. There did not seem to be much disagreement with the concept that society can and should try to frame more important issues, solve more important problems, and capture more specific opportunity. In response to a question, I mentioned opportunities to reconsider to what extent people and discussion focus on individuals and to what extent people and discussion focus on groups. I also noted opportunities to consciously improve self-awareness and thinking skills.
Another person led a later session and recommended people’s focusing more on deciding what they want to achieve compared to trying to achieve what they think they want.
