If it’s difficult to spot trends, it’s even harder to apply that trend to something meaningful. Positioning yourself to ride the wave. There’s a great article at trendwatching.com on the basics of spotting trends. They offer 5 tips to spot trends:

Tip 1: Know why you’re tracking trends.

Tip 2: Have a point of view.

Tip 3: Weave your web of resources.

Tip 4: Fine-tune your trend framework.

Tip 5: Embed and apply.

You’ll get a detailed explanation of each tip along with tons of examples. It’s definitely worth your time. Check it out at trendwatching.com!
