Predicting the future

You can guess at the future but you can never be able to predict the future with precision. We can barely frame the present state in its exactness much less do so in the future where all the variables aren't accounted for.

We can only hope that what we do today will somehow benefit tomorrow. But you won't know how goodness shows itself tomorrow until we produce goodness today. It's very much like playing the lottery -- you have to buy the ticket before you have a chance of winning -- except the odds of making things happen in life are much more favorable.

Do good today and don't be surprised something good happens later. And if you keep on doing good, your odds will only get better. Work hard and do so consistently, and pretty soon, the odds are so much in your favor that you will be tripping over good fortune.

So invest in yourself. Invest in your future today.

Life is a singular view of the world seen through your own lenses. And every person has his or her unique pair. That's why we don't always see things eye to eye. And that's ok. We need to be cognizant of it though. Reality -- whatever reality is -- probably isn't what we are thinking. What is reality is probably something else, especially how we are feeling at any particular moment. 
If the above is the case, we need to be very careful about making rash decisions that would negatively affect our lives permanently. Your default position must always be of great caution, to not cause harm if all possible, to not be mean if all possible. You don't have to be nice, but you can always try to not make a bad situation worse. Sometimes it means keeping…

First blog entry to

First day of the 2018 year and the first blog entry of This will be a collection of rather humble things I learned and my goal is to post at least one a day, so you can expect that from me. I hope what I share will benefit you, yet this blog is at its core for my self-improvement. I want to learn something new each and every day, no matter how small. This is something I expect from myself.
