As an alumni speaker of Digital-Shift, we invited Daniel Diemers back to speak about uncertainty in investing. Daniel is a freelance consultant in digital and exponential technologies and an investor.
Working in new technologies, for example with Blockchain is an uncertain field per definition where a bet can swing wildly in one or another direction. Daniel’s personal strategy for coping, nay even thriving in such an environment is to keep a playful mindset and to make mental models of what may happen in 2 to 5 years and even beyond. If you keep a flexible mind, even if your mental maps were not accurate, it’s a starting point to investigate, then refine them, and they also help evaluate what’s been happening in the past.
