Lawyers. Accountants. Computer programmers. That’s what our parents encouraged us to become when we grew up. But Mom and Dad were wrong. The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind. The era of “left brain” dominance, and the Information Age that it engendered, are giving way to a new world in which “right brain” qualities-inventiveness, empathy, meaning-predominate.
The Conceptual Age an era where individuals grow richer, technology becomes more powerful and the world grows more connected, we enter an era of society of creators and meaning meakers.
That’s the argument at the center of this book A Whole New Mind, which uses the two sides of our brains as a metaphor for understanding the contours of our times.
I invite you to fill THE CARD THAT KEEPS YOU ON TRACK to relate to the things that you consider most important in your life, to help you to achieve the best of yourself for this Conceptual Age.
