We can't predict the future, yet we do it all the time. We organize projects, events, days, weeks, and years. We plan to buy a home, build a career, travel, get married, raise children, teach a class, retire, or get in shape. Our ability to model the world as it is and might be is a gift, but mental time travel is also really hard. Fortunately, since planning is a skill, everyone from playful improviser to rigorous planner can greatly improve, if they are ready to learn:
- The principles and practices of nonlinear planning.
- How to grow and sustain hope with willpower and waypower.
- When to pivot or persist with paths, goals, values, and metrics.
- How myths, memories, fears, and feelings shift the future.
- Why the plans of an octopus are the product of evolution.
- How artificial intelligence is poised to transform what we plan.
If you hate planning, you're doing it wrong. The uncertainty of change makes us crave chaos or control, but it's as dangerous to be rigid as it is to move fast and break things. To organize the future, we will find better ways, because happiness is a prediction, and it's also the freedom you'll feel upon realizing there is no one right way to plan.

À propos de l'auteur

written in a gentle conversational style and punctuated by the author’s biographical tales and his takes on veganism, htalth, animal welfare, and extreme sd/rts. His central idea is that planning is inescapable, humans are brilliant at planning, and that we should rethink our attitude toward and use of planning by focueing on planning as process rather than production of static artefacts. ‘Planning is indispensable but plans are useless.’ And he provides a unique and very smart framework for making planning more social, collaborative, exploratory, visual, tangible, situational, agile, informed and fun. Memorise the mnemonic and you can take it away and try it out at work and at home. An intelligent, thoughtful book with many original perspectives, marred only by some (to my taste) inelegant soundbite prose styling in places which undermines the author’s seriousness and his otherwise warm, humane and authentic voice. Otherwise highly recommended.
On the surface, Peter Morville’s new book seems like a hands-on guide to making better plans. And it is; it includes practical frameworks that can help with your planning. But there’s much below the surface that makes this book special. It goes deep into the subject, examining how we envision future possibilities, set goals, decide among various compelling options, strategize, act, and reflect. Throughout it weaves examples and stories both from the author's personal experience — running marathons, leading a consultancy, parenting — and from literary sources that range from the Bhagavad Gita to Yuval Noah Harari. The result is not only practical, but also entertaining and inspiring.
This short book is long on wisdom; I left it feeling as though I'd just spent a calm afternoon with an insightful mentor. If you’re facing a major life decision (or even a minor one), it behooves you to read it.
