Summary Description

Big, life-altering decisions matter so much more than the decisions we make every day, and they're also the most difficult. And, there's certainly no one-size-fits-all approach for addressing these kinds of conundrums. 

In Farsightedauthor Steven Johnson, highlights powerful tools for honing the important skill of complex decision-making.  As Johnson shows, the smartest decision-makers don't go with their guts. Their success relies on having a future-oriented approach and the ability to consider all their options in a creative, productive way.

And this approach can be put to work in your situation.  While you can't model a once-in-a-lifetime choice, you can model the deliberative tactics of expert decision-makers.  These experts aren't just the master strategists running major companies or negotiating high-level diplomacy. They're the novelists who draw out the complexity of their characters' inner lives, the city officials who secure long-term water supplies, and the scientists who reckon with future challenges most of us haven't even imagined.

Johnson explains how we can most effectively.  This programwill help you imagine your possible futures and appreciate how complex decision-making shaped our history.
