What You'll Learn
This video contains a top-down overview of the Abundance and Exponentials 101 course
Local and Linear Vs. Global and Exponential
The world is changing exponentially, but humans' brains evolved to think in a linear fashion. In this video, Peter discusses the disadvantages of local, linear thinking in today's global, exponential world.
Cognitive Biases – Part 1
Are your brain's shortcuts negatively affecting the quality of your decisions? In this video, Peter discusses why we have cognitive biases and outlines the most common biases.
Cognitive Biases – Part 2
Are biases holding you back? In this video, Peter uncovers four of the top cognitive biases entrepreneurs and leaders have. Understanding these will help you develop strategies to counteract them in your day-to-day decision making.
What Does Exponential Growth Feel Like
Exponential growth is difficult for linear brains to process. In this video, Peter helps you think about the power of doubling and shares the top numbers for entrepreneurs to memorize.
What does it mean when something is growing exponentially? In this video, Peter illustrates the power of doubling and shares several easy-to-relate examples of exponential growth.
Why This is Happening Now
Why is disruptive change happening now? In this video, Peter shares the key data points driving today's era of unprecedented change.
Disruption Caused by Exponentials – Part 1
Exponential technologies create powerful opportunities for entrepreneurs. In this video, Peter demonstrates how tech enables startups to take on well-established businesses and industries.
Disruption Caused by Exponentials – Part 2
Exponentials can disrupt incumbents, but they also create opportunities for entrepreneurs. In this A360D video, Peter discusses the positive implications of exponential growth.
What is Moore's Law, and what does it mean for entrepreneurs? In this video, Peter will discuss Moore's Law and how this observation has driven technological and societal progress for over 50 years.
The Law of Accelerating Returns
What happens over time when we use the best tools to create even better versions of those tools? In this video, Peter outlines Ray Kurzweil's Law of Accelerating Returns, with rich graphs from Kurzweil's book The Singularity is Near.
Exponential growth in one technology enables future technologies to emerge. In this video, Peter will show you how exponential technologies grow and what happens after they lose momentum.
My Book Abundance
One of the most powerful tools Peter can equip you with is an abundance mindset. In this video, Peter discusses the backstory of his bestselling book Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think
An almond-sized structure in your brain, operating on ancient "software," governs your emotions and behavior. In this video, Peter discusses the amygdala and how it affects your mindset as an entrepreneur.
Scarcity Into Abundance
Is anything truly scarce? In this video, Peter will outline his research from Abundance proving that technology is a resource-liberating force.
Lessons of Aluminum
What can leaders learn from aluminum? In this video, Peter shares a story from his bestselling book Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think that will make you rethink what you consider scarce.
Future of Abundance
In the next 30 years, we'll be able to take care of the basic needs of every man, woman and child on the planet. In this video, Peter outlines how current and emerging technologies will make the world's scarcest resources abundant.

The Rising Billion
Today, around the world, we have unprecedented access to powerful technology. In this video, Peter discusses the Rising Billion and what these minds represent to entrepreneurs, the global economy and humankind.
The 6 D's of Exponential Growth
What if you had a framework to contextualize all disruptive technological progress, like an exponential road map? In this video, Peter walks through his 6 D's of Exponential Growth.
How does exponential growth begin? How can leaders exponentially scale their products and services? In this video, Peter discusses the first step of his 6 D's framework: digitization.
Deceptive to Disruptive
Has a technology-enabled breakthrough ever caught you by surprise? In this video, Peter will outline the most important phase of the 6 D's for entrepreneurs to evaluate disruptive opportunities.
Deceptive to Disruptive Future Implications
What technologies are going from deceptive growth to disruptive growth right now? In this video, Peter describes two key fields for entrepreneurs to watch: autonomous vehicles and quantum computing.
