Our Ability to Shape Events
Where we are is a function of our choices, some we've consciously made, others implicitly, still others made for us (for better or for worse).
We are a product of our experiences. And our path forward will be a product of our ability to draw from these experiences as well.
The reality, of course, is that we can't predict what will happen. We can only draw on our best judgement to make better decisions.
But that doesn't mean we have no control. It just means we don't have complete information.
And it doesn't negate the need to plan, to direct and to pursue what we believe in. It cannot be an excuse.
It's simply a challenge.
Is there any alternative?
