FOREsight: Awaken curiosity. Cultivate wisdom. Discover the abundant future.

In a data-laden, disrupted, dread-inducing world, how can we see clearly into the future? How can we navigate through the data, become the disruptors and replace our sense of dread for the future with a clear-thinking, positive vision of things to come?Following his first two ground-breaking books, What’s Your Moonshot? and Magnetiize, John Sanei turns his endless curiosity to the perspectives, perceptions and prejudices that prepare us for our illogical future.

He breaks down the four types of seeing – HINDsight, PLAINsight, INsight and FOREsight – we humans use to guide us through the world and into the future. Then, with 20 shots of vivid, eye-opening FOREsight, he gives readers the opportunity to peer into what that future could be and ask the types of questions that will allow us to embrace it with optimism.

• What can the history of the first autonomous vehicle, the elevator, teach us about autonomous cars and their effect onreal estate and city planning?
• Why will the gold in our smartphones change the way we mine gold from the ground?• Why are adaptability and flexibility more important than endless qualifications?
• How can you connect the invisible dots between the confusion of today and the grand potential of tomorrow?

FOREsight: Awaken curiosity. Cultivate wisdom. Discover the abundant future.

What's Your Moonshot?: Future-proof yourself and your business in the age of exponential disruption.

In What’s Your Moonshot? trend and innovation strategist John Sanei explains how to ask the bigger, bolder, more courageous questions that will help you thrive – rather than merely survive – in our exponentially changing times.

With a future-focused victor mindset, Sanei decodes the mega-trends that are reshaping human behaviour and the way we do business – not to mention, the way we live our lives. He then explains how to innovate your business with the ultimate aim of becoming the new type of billionaire: someone who positively affects billions of people.

As the foundations of modern economies – transportation, communication and energy – start becoming free or virtually free, massive transformative ideas can now be driven by individual ambition and determination. No longer the sole domain of nations and global organisations, these pioneering, game-changing missions – or Moonshots – are defined by thinking big to drive change and shape the future. So the real question is:

Magnetiize: Stop the chase. Understand the change. Take control of your future.

The world is caught in a never-ending chase. Life and business seem only to get more complex, confusing and fast-paced.
How can we regain our calm and clarity? How do we retain control and live purposeful lives when for so long doing business has been all about madly prioritising profit?

In his best-selling book What’s Your Moonshot? John Sanei asked, How BIG is your thinking? Now, in Magnetiize, he asks, How CONSCIOUS is your thinking?
With his unique blend of psychology, business strategy and future studies, he reveals the new way. He asks us to look inwards first, to find authenticity and meaning. Then, in looking out, he explains how purpose-led business isn’t just the ethical choice; it is ultimately the rational choice for long-term sustainability in a world looking for conscious and ethical solutions.
