You. Help. Make. The. Future. It isn’t something just done to you, delivered like gifts from a cargo cult. You help make the future. Every decision you make contributes. When you craft a creative work, or teach in a certain way, or nudge a campus in one direction, or support a political candidate, or tell a story, or dream out loud, or influence younger folks, you help co-create what is coming next. Don’t be passive - it’s too late! You’re already making it happen. You are all - each of you - practicing futurists and world-makers. Do so with open eyes, and the flame of creative possibility roaring in your heart.
