This lecture is about decision-making with the future in mind.  Each of us has our own vision for how the future should look, but unless we can agree on a shared vision, our efforts will be fragmented and could be counterproductive.  How can we reach agreement on a shared future?  How can we influence others to bend their vision to enhance ours? Do we have the maturity to change our minds? Let’s start by considering some simple decisions – how do you make those decisions?  Habit? Convenience? What if you took the time to make considered decisions? Would you change your mind?  Or maybe we should start by considering our values. What are some frameworks for considering our values? “When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier”.  (Roy Disney) “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
