Rule 4 on the future - Give Points for Audacity!


What does that word mean, Audacity? Well it is to be bold and like bragging or to be brave and act forward in a loud way - about what is going on.

This is how Mr. Goetz talks about Audacity:  “Audacity is easily written off as naïveté, as overshooting your resources or talents. And that’s a danger. Plenty of would-be Napoleons have called for revolutions that never found an army. But you can’t make the future without imagining what it might look like.” Mr. Goetz continue - “Peter Thiel told wired two years ago, “Am I right and early, or am I just wrong? You always have to wonder.” This kind of willingness to take a chance and be early is what keeps the world moving.”

Can we give Floorball any Points for Audacity?

- A new sport that only 30 years after its own birth becomes recognized by the IOC?
- A outstanding constant positive stream from Students in Singapore on twitter?
- A little sport that does not only play a large tournament at the Zurich train station and now this year take the Swedish leagues opening games to Bern - just like how the NHL do their thing?
- A sport where one of the world’s best teams fly people to Jamaica and introduce what they do there on the national TV?

- A sport where kids post zorro movies to youtube like crazy?
- yes, even a mad blog like this one...

It is all about audacity and with no doubt Floorball score another 100% as we try to match up on how this new sport match the rules - on how to spot the future, by Mr. Goetz.

We have three more rules on the future to cover.

It is our understanding that beside of  this article, that we refer to here, Mr. Goetz, also have been presenting the subject "how to spot the future" to live audiences. In his article he defines 7 rules on "how to spot the future".
Since Floorballcentral is convinced that Floorball is what is next in sports we will take the rules - as they are defined by Mr. Goetz - and see how Floorball as a sport match up to these rules. We are fully aware that what Mr. Goetz write in his article mainly aim for "tech" development. This is not something we see as an obstacle. This is post 4 in a series of 7 that relates to the article by Mr. Goetz. http://www.wired.com/business/2012/04/ff_spotfuture/all/. Read it at the source and get the real feel for what is next.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
