About

Each of us thinks about the future.  I study the future.  I attended my first World Future Society global conference in 1971.  Eight years later, I was one of the first persons in the world to receive a Master’s degree in Studies of the Future.  It didn’t change the world but it changed my life. 

People still roll their eyes when they think they’ve met a futurist.  It used to bother me.  Now it’s merely annoying.  That’s why I have this blog.  It’s my way of interacting with people who want to engage the future, occassionally step to the right of their left cerebral hemisphere, learn about organizational foresight and periodically be subjected to my personal R&R (rants & raves).

We have all been blessed with hindsight.  I hope this blog helps make foresight and change management an equally valuable gift.  I apply it every day to my own businesses and can confidently state — it works. 

I close by encouraging your comments on any of the posts.  They will always be thoughtfully read and appreciated.  And I promise I will never roll my eyes.

  1. I have worked with Randy on some non-profit stuff for a few years and it been a ride. My first impression of Randy was not that of a futurist. I am guilty of stereotyping futurists. Randy is down to earth and seamlessly “dumbs down” to connect with us normal folks. After working with Randy for a while now, I have experienced a paradigm shift in my thinking. (Randy calls it “noodling”) Don’t know how it happened, but it did. I think I picked up a few IQ points along the way.
