As I continue to develop the ‘Future Hackers’ book, it means finding interesting examples to back up the concepts discussed.

In the chapter about ‘Future of Work’, we’re partly looking at critical skills towards 2030.

One key skill is ‘Cognitive Flexibility‘ – our capacity to quickly stop one task and move to another or even to hold multiple concepts together simultaneously.

While looking for fun examples of how to develop this skill, I came across ‘Chess Boxing’, described by Wikipedia as to how ‘Two combatants play alternating rounds of blitz chess and boxing until one wins by checkmate or knockout.’

You’re more likely to find me on a Yoga mat than a boxing ring, but I’m always in awe of human creativity!
