Future Rule 7 - Spend time, with time wasters





Let us  first quote Mr. Goetz on his 7th rule on “how to spot the future”;


-”The classic business plan imposes efficiency on an inefficient market. Where there is waste, there is opportunity. Dispatch the engineers, route around the problem, and boom—opportunity seized.
That’s a great way to make money, but it’s not necessarily a way to find the future. A better signal, perhaps, is to look at where people—individuals—are being consciously, deliberately, enthusiastically inefficient. In other words, where are they spending their precious time doing something that they don’t have to do? Where are they fiddling with tools, coining new lingo, swapping new techniques? That’s where culture is created.”

As we now try to find our “time wasters” in Floorball we boom hit all zorro artists. A new lingo are you kiddin’? No one needs to do the world’s best Zorro or air-drops to play good Floorball - still the phenomena is there.
Take the splendid example Innebandysajten in Sweden (now closed) an immense load of work with no real payment, just based free will - and such a strong will? Take all the volunteers at the club levels - that maybe not waste their time - but they do things from an intrinsic drive instead of money earned.
Take this blog - no.. We think that Floorballer’s do not exactly waste their time - but it is almost like big parts of the drive in the full movement ahead is dependant upon a large part of wasted time.
How is that? 

Well, yet again we think that Floorball as a movement score 100% on one of the rules stated by Mr. Goetz on “how to spot the future”.

The time waste rule is Mr. Goetz last rule. We will follow up this little series with a final that sums up our conclusions. It is mainly in two areas that Floorballcentral envision some improvement - on our track into tomorrow.



This is our post 7 on the subject as described by Mr. Goetz - on how to spot the future - as we relate his article to Floorball. Here are our other posts:

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 take the rules - as they are defined by Mr. Goetz - and see how Floorball as a sport and a movement match up to these rules. We are fully aware that what Mr. Goetz wrote in his article mainly aim for "tech" development. This is not something we see as an obstacle. This is post 6 in a series of 7 + 1 that relates to the following article by Mr. Goetz. http://www.wired.com/business/2012/04/ff_spotfuture/all/

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!
