“As for the future, your task is not to foresee it, but to enable it.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I no longer try to predict the future. It certainly fascinates me; I am as eager as the next person to know what lies around the bend. The only thing I have some control over is now. I trust that what happens next will unfold exactly as it should and I’m confident that I can and will flex to make the most of the future, not matter what it holds.
I try to build skills and experiences that I think will be useful tomorrow.
I spend a lot of time nurturing relationships and giving much more to my network than I ask or take.
Each day I try to learn at least one new thing.
Before I go to sleep and as soon as I wake up, I make gratitude my first thought. I find that the more often I count my blessings, the more blessings I have to count.
The future is coming for us. We have a hand in how it unfolds. We may not always be able to control it, but we can control how we manage it when it arrives. Be ready.
