Are you one of those trying to create the future? Do you have any secret to share?

I read opposite positions from the same authors: Sometimes they laud people looking at the future for inspiration, and sometimes they blame people talking in the future tense in order to hide their lack of achievements, the drifters in a team.

By Dan Rockwell?

For example:

“Frustrated leaders spend far too much time focused on the past and far too little time creating the future. They’re always saying, “What are we doing wrong?”

The past cannot be changed. Stop trying to fix it. If you don’t have clear vision for the future, looking back destroys you…”

Peter Drucker said, “The best way to predict the future is create it.” You create the future by building on the past, not fixing it.

The past is disappointing when things are not working in the present. But don’t focus on the past in order to create your future.

Let vision not history create your future.

The first things to ask are, “Where do we want to go and what’s the next step to getting there?”

NOT, “What went wrong and how do we fix it.?”

The past is useful when you have the future in mind. (

Kind of trying to foresee the trend? But it is Not easy to comprehend the paradigm shifts that go counter to the general agreement among the self-serving “professionals” in any field of practice)

Focusing on the past only pulls you into the past, unless you have the future in mind.

The past is a platform only for those looking forward; otherwise, it’s an anchor.

Dan Rockwell wrote:

Your past can be:

  1. A distraction from the present and future. Longing for the past destroys the future.
  2. An object of reflection that helps you know and understand yourself and others.
  3. An anchor or platform.
  4. A teacher that shows you things to repeat and more importantly, things to stop.

How to create your future?

When you see frustration or failure ask:

  1. What are you trying to accomplish?
  2. What are you doing to get where you want to go?
  3. What is the next – most useful – thing you can do, right now?
  4. What should be stopped? (past)
  5. What should be continued? (past)

What are you trying to do right always precedes what went wrong.

The secret to creating the future is first seeing it then looking back.

What future-creating tips can you add?

What role does the past play as leaders build the future?

Tidbits and notes posted on FB and Twitter. Part 239

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page of backlog opinions and events is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory

Israel has to deal with two major problems simultaneously:  Israel has old nuclear reactors built in the 1955 by the French (and disintegrating and leaking), which the international nuclear agency fake that it cannot check because Israel refuses to sign on the UN non-proliferation nuclear arms.  The second challenge is how to deal with the new  intrepid Palestinians youth?  The US has no leverage over people who demanded changes and got it.

Israel Dimona atomic reactor was not finished as French Mendes France resigned and the fiasco of the invasion of the Suez canal in 1958 forced Eisenhauer to review the expansionist policies of Israel.  At best, Israel has the necessary experts and personnel to maintain and control the nuclear reactors in the submarines that France and Germany delivered to it.

Israel didn’t sign on to the treaty of non-proliferation of atomic bombs for a simple reason:  Israel has no such costly program and no ballistic missiles carrying nuclear bombs.  The western nations are not that dumb:  They know that Israel was born as a rogue State, continued to behave as a rogue State, and will eventually finish as a rogue State.

Qatar funded terrorist factions to be transferred to Jarablos by Turkey’s border: The Muslem Brotherhood in Turkey and Qatar are allied.

The international community is feeling sick of Israel’s chimerical security demands when all its behaviors are against peace and security in the region.  Israel prefers to play it dumb as if she is living on an island. (In fact a land jet carrier for US emergency operations in the Middle-East)

Jesus, the Walking Rabi, has been advancing toward Jerusalem in the last 6 months. He was lambasting the Pharisee and the other Jewish sects of the priesthood.  The Jewish Sanhedrin has been gathering intelligence on Jesus for over a year now and it has accumulated a thorough biography of Jesus and his messages. The Roman governor Pilate and the King of Lower Galilee Herod Epiphany were tracking intensively Jesus progress toward Jerusalem: Both were very edgy of this non-violent movement.

The Galapagos are one of the world’s last havens for wildlife — pristine islands where giant tortoises, blue-footed boobies, and penguins live as they have for thousands of years. But tourism and development have recently skyrocketed, destroying the home of animals and plants found nowhere else on the planet — leaving many species on the brink of extinction. A vital, 568-acre piece of land was put up for sale to the highest bidder.

“Cotton Bt”? Monsanto genetically altered cotton with Bacillus thuringiensis bacteria. It pressured the government and peasants of Africa Burkina Faso in 2010 to replace the regular cotton at a steep price for the seed. Monsanto seed turned out to be far below the traditional cotton from the first year, women were getting sick handling the cotton and the cows were dying eating the leaves. Monsanto promised to work on the seed, but didn’t for 4 years.

Cotton growers in Burkina Faso (formerly known as Haute-Volta) are very satisfied as Monsanto seed was phased out from the market: harvest exceeded expectation and export of the traditional cotton is improving greatly

Monsanto a bacle’ les manupulations genetique “il y avait urgence et la filiere Inera perdait de l’argent”. Ils n’ ont fait que deux back-crosses au lieu de sept.

Mansanto moved its Africa headquarter from South Africa to Kenya in 2015. The rotten governments in Kenya and Nigeria are faking Not to have any intelligence on the failure of cotton and corn Bt in Burkina Faso for 4 years.
