How to Create a Futures Capsule
Map Your Mini-Moonshots & Begin Living Your Desired Future
Studies show that only about 15% of Americans have a plan for their lives. It's time to change that!
Why? Because we create our future in the present moment through our beliefs, behaviors, and actions. Having a plan helps guide the thoughts that create our actions in the present while building the future.
Have you ever created a time capsule so you can look at it later and remember the past? The Futures Capsule is designed to do the reverse - it helps us plan for the future.
Mapping out our desired Mini-Moonshots - our milestones, goals, and adventures - creates momentum through the process of dreaming, deciding, and doing. Follow the steps in this free course to create a Futures Capsule designed to help you map out both the present and future you want to experience.
This course is designed to help you take a look at the next four years of your life and make a futures plan - using the mini-moonshots you want to create and experience - for each year. Enjoy!
Hello! My name is Connie Reimers-Hild. I am the Founder and Chief Futurist at Wild Innovation as well as the creator of F * School. Why? I want to help mid-career professionals take charge of their time, well-being, and investments (while learning from my mistakes).
I am a certified Futurist (yes, it is an actual profession), certified professional coach and self-proclaimed Funologist (a person dedicated to the practice and study of fun) with a passion for helping people, organizations and businesses create greater prosperity in the future by living more fully in the present.
After doing “whatever it takes” and playing by ”the rules” during my twenty-five-year academic career (while also having a family and running Wild Innovation), I was the first female to be appointed to an Executive Director (interim) role at a university-wide institute. Leading the Rural Futures Institute at the University of Nebraska was an enjoyable experience because we had a dedicated team of people eager to partner and innovate with leaders throughout the United States and the world. As a Futurist, I could see the possibilities! I loved working with leaders from Microsoft, Google, Apple and Verizon as well as rural communities around the world.
After an unsuccessful attempt to negotiate greater job clarity and a pay raise designed to close a pay gap of more than $158,000, it was time for me to say “F * It” (Future It) and declare my freedom. I wrote my first-ever resignation letter and began focusing on my health, family and business. I also set out on a quest to rediscover what it means to be a human, a mom, a wife and a lover of life. Leaving a long-term career, as a middle-aged woman, has been a challenging and insightful process. I had to change my self-identity, forgive many elements of my past (mom guilt anyone?) and reignite my soul. I also had to learn that life does not have to be hard. Rather, it can — and should be — enjoyable and fulfilling. Life should be fun!
My Futurist self knows that we create our future in the present. And, I had to uncover — and in many cases rediscover — my desired future while expanding my mindset and designing daily actions that mapped to the ultimate, and honest, future vision. F* School is designed with a blend of strategic foresight and neuroscience. Lessons and coaching sessions help people and companies create new visions for a more prosperous future while also establishing new habits and behaviors to achieve their goals.
My biggest lesson during my own transformation? Sometimes you just have to “F * It!” Of course that means “Future It” in my world. :) I am here to help you “F * It” whenever you are ready to uncover and pursue your desired future — all while enjoying the present moment a whole lot more!
