Workshop: Discovering Potential & Expanding Vision

Scott Morgan, The Morgan Group

Description: This workshop begins with how the science of potentiality can be harnessed to explain our past choices and clarify our vision going forward. Have paper and pen on hand!

Exercise 1: Historical look at attention.

Once patterns of the past are recognized, we can begin to plot our way forward. We explore “outrageous dreams” and plot a timeline on how to get there — keeping in mind that our goals may be figurative.

Exercise 2: Build a seven-year timeline.
