The only thing constant in life is change.
Most of us operate on the illusion that things are going to stay the same – that what we build: our businesses, our homes, our relationships, and our savings, will endure.
Accompanying this illusion is the false hope that there are things we can do which will cause us to gain control of our future. If we work hard, save our money, and get to know the right folks, then our future will be a smooth, trouble-free existence.
But, my experience is that life never works out the way we drew it up in the playbook. It presents us with problems and ambiguities that we did not anticipate.
Regardless of how much planning we do, we always end up having to call a lot of audibles.
Therefore, the attribute we need most in life is wisdom.
