The Hour Of Need

Thank god I was able reach you in time. I write you in most desperate hour of need. As I look out the window I urgently think of the path ahead and threats moving in on me. Our quest that are before us is the biggest in humanities entire history. We are going to redesign an entire civilization. This is also a great opportunity for you and me. I’ve come over some key ingredients that will take us leaping into this future way ahead of everybody else…

All I need is your bank-account number and I can start transferring …

Put Words To Your Thoughts

Just kidding. This is my beginning of new quest that many friends new and old begins on this day. Well it is actually several quests. The first one is the #Blogg100 challenge that me and many others jump on again this year where I will be sharing my story on this quest. It will be full my written thoughts and insights combined with some audio- and video blogs of the same. We will do this every day for the coming 100 days. Do join in this challenge. It’s okay to start late. The most important thing about blogging is that you write for yourself by putting words to your thoughts. In that process your thoughts become so much clearer and crystallized.

The first year I did this in 2013 really changed my life to the better. I found a sense of purpose and direction into the future that I am still navigating. This would later result that in the autumn of 2015 I redefined my role as Captain Future. A Future-captain. A person who helps others in navigating the future we want and setting their direction into this future. I did this in taking the #ULAB MOOC while pre-sensing my own future with the help of my coaching circle.

Co-Creating The Future

The other quest that starts today for me and others is the #BurningManWeek in Stockholm and the Burning Man European Leadership Summit. This week is all about we can take what is best for the co-creating and participatory culture of Burning Man and apply that in creating new form of innovation, leadership and democracy.

This is also the first official start this year for me, in our common theme this year in #PrototypingTheFuture. We will do this at a lot of great events in what we call the Impact Journey. It will have its cresendo in October with Nordic Impact Week in San Franciscio. More on that in coming episodes.

My part in this talking to people why and how we actually do this. I do this in all my channels like this blog, my podcast #Framtidspodden (The Future Pod) and my new audio and video show called #TheCaptainFutureShow

At the Burning Man Week we are also going to burn a big wooden Phoenix

The Burn of the Phoenix is gonna take place on Saturday 18:00 for the #BurningMan European Leadership Summit and Stockholm #BurningManWeek.

The #FireBird 🔥🦅 is also the symbol for the new #TibetanNewYear. It’s a symbol for turbulent times – Both challenges and opportunities in store for us 💥🌈

Let’s make 2017 a year where we move forward into the future. We do that to #CoCreate The Future and #PrototypingTheFuture as we go ❤️🌍🚀

Join me and the other future heroes as we embark on the endeavour to create a better future on Spaceship Earth!

Awe of Nature

I’m having one of my biggest moments of awe in my life. It has lasted 10 hours and has really culminated at the end. I’m flying to San Francisco from Amsterdam. We have been flying first leaving the fascinating flat Holland by the sea. And just when we where passing over Greenland the clouds disappeared and we get to see the amazing Greenland glaciers that are quickly melting away and all the Icebergs in the fjords.

Then it was mostly clouds all the way to Alberta square farmlands. Then we saw them. The Canadian Rocky Mountains. So beautiful and endless. Then after some more farmlands in Washington state the large Volcanos stared to appear both close and by the horizon. Just awesome peaks standing over the rest of the horizon all white on top.

We truly live on beautiful planet. That is why I choose Earth to live on. To make sure that it stays a beautiful place to visit in the galaxy. Our utmost communal challenge is to become Stewards, Guardians, Captains and All crew members of Spaceship Earth as soon as possible.

My Core

I’m just taking into my core of this amazing experience so far. So much awe and so much to work for. And now I’m going to stay in San Francisco for 9 more days during the whole of Nordic Impact Week. I’m going to meet many more Future Heroes and Future Captain who understand the gravitas of the expedition and endeavour we are about to embark upon.

For me it becomes ever more clear that this is why I choose to live on Earth in this interesting time of history. To build a global movement of changemakers. To connect and elevate others. That’s why I find the Theory U – U.Lab course: Transforming Business, Society and Self so fascinating and right in time to spread the tools to make sustainable change.
