In fact writing this blog post, I have moved into the future! 'If only we could see the future! Well, in a way we can.as we experience more and more in the business world there is one thing that helps us. What we learn with our failures and our successes is that although we cannot predict the future, each day we are living the future. Think about that fact for a minute. We visit the future, we live in the future each moment that passes.therefore if we build constant learning into our lives we learn how to mitigate risk, how to maximise benefits we can learn to manage the future well.
