  • Let me start by setting the context here. I am going to talk about three skills for the future - which are very important. The Synthesizing Mind - There is an information overload. Your ability to synthesize and bring coherence to these facts is very important in the coming future. What facts / information makes sense, what to keep and what not to keep. And synthesize not only for yourself but also how you communicate that synthesis - through mindmaps, storytelling, analogies, system thinking etc.The Disciplined Mind - the practice of doing something and you become good at it, Mastering a new way of thinking (and I am not talking subject matter) but really skills that can be applied. A lens that you can use to view a problem from. It requires ten years to become good anything.The Creative Mind - Out of box thinking - which requires mastery of where you know - then only you can go out of the box. It requires the ability to take chance, take the risk, be not afraid to fail and say "what can I learn from this".  It requires you come up with work that changes how other people think or behave - then only you can call it creative - make the change happen
