The Future You: Break Through the Fear and Build the Life You Want (Hardcover)
In the first book of its kind, an acclaimed futurist gives readers the tools they need to envision and create the future they want.
If you’re like most people, thinking about tomorrow makes you anxious. You may have dreams of what you want to do or where you want to be in the next few months, years, or decade, but you’re fearful because you don’t know what may await. Unfortunately, this apprehension affects how you make decisions today—the kind of decisions that will impact your life tomorrow.
Acclaimed futurist Brian David Johnson has spent a quarter century helping governments, Fortune 500 corporations, and other organizations chart successful paths forward by showing them what the world will soon look like. Now, he uses his prognosticator’s skill to help you be your best self—to help you see the future, and your place in it, in a new light.
Johnson’s method isn’t magic and doesn’t rely on a crystal ball. It’s grounded in science and highly practical. In Future You, he lays out a series of pragmatic steps to help you better understand the present and to actually envision your tomorrow. In this groundbreaking, eye-opening guide, he makes clear that you’re responsible for creating the future you want—and you have the power to do it.
The Future You encourages you to dream about your tomorrow—and gives you the tools to make it real.
