Does Anticipation Help?

Everybody knows you can’t predict the future. You can make sweeping generalizations, but it has not been scientifically proven that humans can predict what exactly lies ahead. 

Anticipation means expecting something to come. Waiting for something to happen.

Well if it’s fact that we can’t predict what lies ahead, is it helpful to anticipate whether good or bad? Is it helpful to expect something to happen when it hasn’t happened yet, to live in a future state whereas the reality is right here, where you are right now? 

Drawing a fine line between the present and an anticipated future means having to choose between what you can do now and what you can expect to do in the future.


Is it Luck?

We’ve been given so many chances to see abundance in our lives. Oftentimes confused as not enough, not what we wanted, not the right time. 

This gift is not what I wanted.

I don’t have enough money. 

I don’t have the right skillset. 

There isn’t enough time for it. 

While we can go on and on about what we don’t have, it would help more if we talk about what we already do have, which is probably a lot.

So no, it’s not really about luck. It’s about honesty and perception.


Don’t Do It All

Just because your voice isn’t the loudest doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a place. 

In a world so cluttered and messy, perhaps it’s more worth it to be anonymous and consistent, rather than random. 

Banksy, rather than Irene Mathews (a made up name).

Focused instead than diluted. 

ko-ko-ya, instead of a one-artist-does-all. 

More importantly, to create instead of letting ideas mold away.
