Ross Dawson explains futurism and how to prosper in a world of unlimited information. They discuss the future of work, the power of defining your relationship with information, and strategies for increasing your attention span in the Digital Age.

Ross believes information overload is the defining feature of our society. The good news is we use futurism to help us reduce anxiety about the future and live our best lives. How? It starts with purpose and a choice. “We can close ourselves off from the world or we can open ourselves up,” Ross says, “and the faster the world changes, the more being open is an advantage.”
