We're called not to predict the future, but to create it. Uncertainty isn't an obstacle, but the canvass on which we all paint.
Will you, then, just copy what others have done, tracing the lines they've already laid down, and using colors long before mixed, in the hope that this will serve you well? Or rather, will you, perhaps, paint boldly something new?
What we learn from the past can help us to get past the past and move into the distinctive future that our present can best create.
