3 Reasons HOW You Think Is More Important Than WHAT You Think
Play • 5 min

Here are the 3 reasons why HOW you think about the Future is more important than WHAT you think about the future:

The future is uncertain. Because of this, WHAT you think about the future is always subject to change. Those who learn HOW to think about the future in a more powerful can see how their actions today will impact a future that is yet to be determined.

When you know HOW to think, WHAT you think is less likely to be wrong. Those who are most successful at predicting the future, constantly change and revise WHAT they think about the future. They know that if they learn to think about the future in a more conscious and curious way, it will enable them to better anticipate how the future might unfold.

When you treat the future as inevitable, you’re no longer engaged in creating it. If you’re more focused on figuring out WHAT the future is going to be, then you’re less likely to take advantage of opportunities to make it something better.
