    Average speakers use a presentation to inform. Great speakers use the platform to persuade, motivate and to inspire. They know techniques one has to learn and practice to wow the audience. 

    Cleaver speakers know they must capture the audience’s interest in the first one to two minutes. They must make a positive impression based on nonverbal communication and subtle characteristics of the voice.

    "Many are the doors of opportunity open to you. But you must imagine yourself stepping through that door in the future." — M. Johannsen

    Dream big dreams; only big dreams have the power to move men’s souls.” — Marcus Aurelius

    Success is more than just living in the present. Some people have dreams, but few have vision. Some simply live in the present; but others — they use the present to construct a better future.

    For example, birds exist day-to-day, squirrels store food in the summer for winter. And so it is with people. We best map out the roles we want to play on the stage of work. For we can be a star, but only if we prepare for it.

    You can choose to be a bit player on the stage of work or a superstar. But to be a star, you will want to learn skill mapping

    This module covers essential elements needed to stimulate foresight and construct a personal vision.

    The first-step is not easy for some. Why?  It calls for you to project yourself into the future using your imagination. If you somehow manage to get from K1 to 12 with your imagination intact, surely college will destroy it. 

    The case can be made that formal education causes imagination to atrophy. Think back, in any of your classes at any time in you life, did a teacher ask to close your eyes and use your imagination? Most people cannot come up with one time — not even once in the many years of sitting in a class room. If you somehow manage to get from K1 to 12 with your imagination intact, surely college will destroy it. 

    But what was atrophied can be fleshed out. 

    A core part of this process is to define the key skill-sets required to play a particular role. But before that, one has to define your social roles. Three of them are future oriented, one is related to what you are currently doing.

    Step 2a: Your Current Role

    Step 2b: Your Next Role

    Step 2c: Your Dream Role

    Step 2d: Your After Life Role


    Roles aren't just played in Hollywood and Bollywood. On the stage of work, you can be a bit player or a star. Imagine your future roles — a future you define — not your boss, not your parents, not your university, you.

    Objectives:
    • Develop a deeper understanding of foresight
    • Practice developing a vision for your future.
    • Write out your Four Roles

    This consists of a series of four videos that: discuss the nature of wisdom, tell you where it may be found and where it is not, and presents key mental abilities needed to become wise.

    Video 1: Overview (11 minutes) 

    Video 2: Where It is Not Normally Found(so you won't waste your time) (9 minutes)

    Video 3: Classic Methods of Learning Wisdom (19 minutes)

    Video 4: The Mental Processes Associated with Its Development (26 minutes)

    Video 1: Developing Wisdom (Overview)


    Time: 11:11

    It pretty clear--powerful and rich are rarely wise. Sadly, those who have power and money typically do not use either of these wisely. And you boss is not much better. But if you take the time to develop this scare mental ability, your stock in the world to the people you care about than owning big time shares in a large corporation.

    These video covers:

    Different illustrations and stories on how wisdom works in the practical world

    Different definitions (after all, this is not accounting)

    The most likely source of this sought after mental ability (you can't blame mom and dad for not having it)

    Resource Video 2: Where You Can't Find It


    Time: 9:39

    Let's face it, many people who desire it, and spend their time looking for it in all the wrong places. Don't laugh, it happens.  A lot. For example, do you think it can be  found in:

    • Those with a high IQ,
    • Those with many degrees,
    • The talking heads on radio and television,
    • Books in the  library,
    • Centers of learning such as the the university,
    • Therapists,
    • Religious leaders,
    • CEO's, and
    • Political leaders.

    In some respects, wisdom is like happiness; a large number chase it for their entire lives but it continually eludes them. Indeed, if they have found wisdom, they would know how to be happy.

    Video 3: Learning Wisdom: Three Classic Methods


    Time: 19:15

    Learn a method based on the writings  of one of the world's greatest sages -- Confucius.

    Experience. Sad to say, the common man rarely learns from experience. Big mistake. You should laugh at someone who says experience by itself is valuable. Experience teaches us little without reflection. Do not be like the masses who like to say they have, "Twenty years of experience (meaning one year of learning followed by 19 years of mindlessness repetition). "

    Reflection. A key learning method missing from Western universities. Not practicing reflection is a big reason you don't learn from experience.

    Imitation.  Modeling is one of the three essential learning methods in the behavioral school of psychology. It is a much better method of learning than experience for a number of reasons.

    You will also find  four other individuals who have wise words for us along with two application exercises.

    Resource Video 4: Mental Processes Associated With Wisdom


    Time: 26:26

    This video focuses on the mental processes you will never learn about in a university classes. It's why wisdom something that won't be developed by writing a paper on it. They include:

    Intuition. Actually, there are two types. Believe it or not, we often decide based on feelings and then justify based on logic.

    Insight. It's not what they are saying, it's what they aren't saying that is important. It's what you don't know is important. After all, it's the missing pieces that are the most important to find.

    Foresight.  It's not whether you can solve the crisis, it's whether you can prevent the crisis from occurring in the first place.  A huge number of people lack this. Powerful people like heads of state can't see much beyond tomorrow.

    Dream Interpretation. Most psychologist believe dreams are messages from the unconscious. You know, that part of the mind that we typically blow off every day since most say, "I don't remember my dreams." In many cultures, those who interpret dreams are considered wise.

    Understanding of Myths. These type of myths contain hidden truths that are embedded in the story. Some of these myths are timeless--the get retold to each generation. This are important stories indeed. We will discuss the implications of the mythic story of Narcissus.

    Ability to Tell Great Stories. People love stories much more than they like facts and stats. The ability to construct teaching stories on the fly is a great on. Not only as a means of teaching, but as a method for changing someone without them becoming defensive.
