What Happens in Tomorrow World?
A Parable About Navigating Uncertainty
Bestselling author and TEDx speaker Jordan Gross’s What Happens in Tomorrow World? offers a poignant, relatable, and necessary parable for navigating uncertainty.
What Happens in Tomorrow World? tells the story of Opti, Pessi, Chill, and Sage—four prizes found in a traditional arcade claw machine game, and what happens when one special player, Cayla “Catch” Alltoys, plays their game.
As Catch maneuvers the claw over, down, and around them, the four prizes face their own crisis—the possibility of what will happen when they are removed from their safe environment and thrust into the unknown “real” world. Each prize reacts in one of the four typical responses most people have to facing uncertain situations. And it is through those reactions, and subsequent actions, that they—and we—learn how our own responses to uncertainty can either help or harm ourselves, those around us, and society as a whole.
An urgently needed guide for managing the anxiety and ambiguity in our daily lives, this book will help readers thrive in challenging situations.
Through this memorable story, you’ll learn:
- How to embrace uncertainty in all parts of life
- Why no single response to uncertainty works for every situation
- How various personality types typically respond differently to uncertainty
- Why it’s crucial to resist responding negatively to uncertainty
- Why it’s important to take action, no matter how uncertain you feel
In the spirit of Spencer Johnson’s Who Moved My Cheese? presents a modern, unique, and useful toolbox for confronting and managing the overwhelming amount of uncertainty we face every day.
