Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt into Fuel for Brilliance

Author: Jonathan Fields

Book Site: Uncertainty

Jonathan Fields knows the risks-and potential power-of uncertainty. He gave up a six-figure income as a lawyer to make $12 an hour as a personal trainer. Then, married with a 3-month old baby, he signed a lease to launch a yoga center in the heart of New York City. . . the day before 9/11. But he survived, and along the way he developed a fresh approach to transforming uncertainty, risk of loss, and exposure to judgment into catalysts for innovation, creation, and achievement. Fields draws on leading-edge technology, cognitive-science and ancient awareness-focusing techniques in a fresh, practical, non-dogmatic way. His approach enables creativity and productivity on an entirely different level and can turn the once-tortuous journey into a more enjoyable quest. Drawing on case studies and research, Fields shares a set of personal practices and environmental changes that can humanize the creative process, and also allow individuals and teams to stay more open to opportunity and play a bigger creative game.
