More About This Show On Predicting the Future of Society With Futurist Chet W. Sisk
During our conversation, John R. Miles asks Chet W. Sisk how a person becomes a futurist?
Chet explains, “It’s not like there’s a school you can go to and get a master’s degree in futurism. It doesn’t matter. But, I will say that my futurism form is really a glorified journalist. I was trained as a trained journalist from the School of Journalism at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, go Salukis.
And so we use some of the essential tools of journalism, you ask, if you’re seeing something, you ask the basic questions. What is it that I’m seeing? How do I follow these stories? Because you want to follow them over an extended period of time. You then want to ask questions about the money and where is it coming from? Because that usually tells the truth.
You also want to ask a question about are there any historic comps, some comparisons in history that look like this that you can point to? And then you want to ask a question about your gut? What is it that you believe that you’re seeing? What experience have you had to make you see something that’s familiar that you can make some kind of judgment on this particular subject?
So you have to trust your gut. For some reason, we’ve gotten away from people thinking that being a trend analyst or a futurist is data-driven, and it is, but it’s not data exclusive. You have to use your intuitive self to lean into it to figure out what you’re seeing.
A futurist isn’t necessarily like a soothsayer guy reading Tarot with a crystal ball. That’s not what we do. We really just read the trends and recognize the trends or decisions. So we’re looking, if you make this decision, then this will be the outcome of that decision.
That’s what we’re saying. So it’s not like, Oh, we’re gonna hold you to those predictions. You need to hold your fellow citizen to those predictions because the predictions are merely decisions. And again, we can change our minds. So I like to put that preface out there.”
